Celebrate World Tapas Day!

That’s right: World Tapas Day. Thursday 16 June, the third Thursday in June, is when Spain, and the world, recognise tapas dishes.


Spanish hams for World Tapas Day - Spain walking holidays


Tapas are small plates of food like albondigas (meatballs in tomato sauce), patatas bravas (fried potato), and chorizo that traditionally are given out in Spanish neighbourhood bars when you order a cava or wine. Spain’s tourism board, Turespana, has designated the third Thursday in June as World Tapas Day to celebrate this tasteful national culinary tradition.

World Tapas Day 2016 is 16 June - Sherpa Expeditions


Around Spain, you can join special tapas tours and workshops on World Tapas Day. At Sherpa Expeditions we are a big fan of tapas from the Andalucía region because of the quality Serrano hams and exceptional cheeses. Visit Spain for a walking holiday next month and you can enjoy special tapas tasting menus designed in collaboration with various chefs and restaurants.


Sherpa Expeditions offers walking holidays in Spain


Not in Spain on Thursday 16th of June? You can still join the festivities! As tapas is such a popular dish worldwide, Spanish restaurants and societies in the UK, Canada, USA and various places in Europe are paying homage by organising different tapas events.


Feel like celebrating World Tapas Day in the country that invented the dish itself? Here is an overview of our walking and cycling holidays to Spain:
