Feria del Jamón y Embutidos

The XXVIII Ham and Sausage Fair at Serón will be held on 5 and 6 July 2024.

The Ham and Sausage Fair at Serón first began in 1995. Every year, apart from a break in 2020 and 2021 due to Covid, Serón celebrates its hams and sausages.

Serón ham is noted for its distinctive slightly sweet and salty flavour and its production, together with the manufacture of sausages, chorizo and morcilla is the main economic activity in the town.

Over the weekend, there will be a ham cutting contest, the National Contest of Cutters of Serrano Ham, a day of ham tasting followed by an orchestral festival in Plaza Nueva plus the Jamón Rock Festival under Calle Chorillo.
