The August Fair in the city of Málaga is celebrated in the middle of August. It is the biggest summer party on the Costa del Sol and one of the largest in Spain. These are dates to enjoy a wide range of activities: concerts, exhibitions, bullfights, children's games, folklore and flamenco.

The fair has two sessions :


Day Fair

The City Center or " day fair ", where you can taste wines and tapas accompanied by good music. The streets are decorated with lanterns and floral decorations. Playgrounds are installed where shows for children and adults are held. The dances and parades with orchestras flood every corner. The " Pandas de Verdiales" stand out" They show their unique folklore.


Night fair

The Trade Fair or " night fair ", located in the Real del Cortijo de Torres , with market stalls and live performances and attractions. The party lasts until late at night. It is the ideal place to try the typical dishes of the area, such as " buñuelos de viento ", a traditional sweet.


The celebrations begin with the proclamation and a great Fireworks show, next to the beach of La Malagueta. Followed by the bullfighting fair in the Plaza de Toros de la Malagueta.

On the Saturday there is the pilgrimage to the Basilica of Our Lady of Victory, the patron saint of Malaga. It is a beautiful procession in which horsemen, carriages and neighbours accompany the flag-bearer of the fair to the sanctuary.

The Feria de Málaga is an event for all the family and not to be missed. Accommodation in the city is almost impossible to find as people travel from all over the region to experience the festival. Parking is also problematic. However, staying nearby and using the regular bus or train service is a great option.

    I find Spain a very interesting country after reading articles like this over the years. Someday I hope to travel to Europe and Spain is definitely one of the countries I want to visit. Spain has a varied topography and so many different aspects to their culture. Reading articles like this makes it even more so in terms of a great place to visit. I live in a gated community that has a Spanish influence.. the entire Village is named after Spanish explorers and places and we are known as the largest (land-wise) gated community in the US.

      Just turn up any day or evening and enjoy. Try staying outside Malaga and catching the train in.
