This event has been held since 1981 every year at Easter. It is chaired by Her Majesty Queen Sofia. It is an international event, promoting Camariñas lace for domestic and fashion use.  The festival especially promotes lace from the Galicia area of Spain. Camariñas also home to an important lace museum, and they have an online virtual museum at http://tinyurl.com/pakvnvg.

The XXI Concurso de Jóvenes Diseñadore (21st Young Designer’s Contest) will also be held at the event, and 28 finalists have been selected to show their fashions out of 95 proposals (finalistas_2014).  Additional information includes: Announcement, registration, Catalogo.  I believe this last one is a catalog of laces available to the designers. Prizes are, 1st – 2,104 UR, 2nd – 1,201 EUR, 3rd, 601 EUR.

A number of courses will also be held, registration information is here: Camarinas courses. There are also demonstrations, and you can use the same form to register for these also. Seems to be a limit of 200 participants. Information is a little vague on the public events, hopefully it will firm up soon.
