FiraTàrrega (also Fira de Teatre al Carrer de Tàrrega) is the international market for performing arts that takes place every year in Tàrrega during the second weekend in September.
Founded in 1981, it is a great shop window of what is going on in performing arts, with special emphasis on street arts, visual and unconventional shows.
As a meeting place and an international point of reference for debate, the main objective of FiraTàrrega is to boost the performing arts market, opening the door to the internationalisation of the companies. Other more specific objectives are the accompaniment and promotion of creations by emergent artists, encouraging training, focused on artistic creation and culture management and on generating strategic alliances to develop transnational street art circuits or productions.
The organizational structure of FiraTàrrega is lead by an Administrative Council comprised of the City Council of Tarrega, the Diputació de Lleida, the Generalitat de Catalunya and the Ministry of Culture.
Fira de Tarrega 2016 will take place from the 8th to the 11th of September.
