Fairs & Ferias
Spain loves a good fair or feria and June being the month of the summer solstice Fiesta de San Juan is one of the best known. San Juan is well-celebrated throughout Spain and each region puts its own slant on proceedings. Málaga, Fuengirola and Marbella are where the largest celebrations are held but in smaller areas there will be celebrations too. The beach bonfires are lit and the celebrations go on all night until dawn. Don’t miss it if you think you can stay up all night. Celebrations this year are held on 23rd June.
Marbella Fair is being held from Wednesday 5th until Tuesday 11th June. This is definitely one to visit if you are in the area as it’s a great event for all ages with music performances, stalls selling local products, flamenco, shows and events for children and of course those obligatory fireworks. Renowned as one of the most colourful fairs in all of Andalucía, the Feria de Marbella is definitely one not to miss and whilst you are there wandering the decorated streets of the Old Town is the perfect antidote to ease away stresses and strains.
