Málaga’s summer celebrations commemorate the taking of the city by the Catholic Monarchs, who entered Málaga on August 19th, 1487, thus incorporating the city into the Crown of Castile. That is why August 19th is always a day of celebration for Malaguenians.
This year’s edition of the Feria de Málaga will be held from August 14th to 22nd. As every year, the celebrations draw in people from all over the country and from abroad. Over five hundred thousand visitors are expected this year between the celebrations in the old town and the fiesta in the fairgrounds. The Feria will start with its traditional fireworks and pregón (an opening speech) on Friday night, followed by eight days of partying throughout the city’s streets. The city’s summer celebrations never fail to gather countless local and national artists, be it singers, artisans or exhibitors.
During the day time, there’ll be live music in different parts of the city, bullfights at the Malagueta Bullring, and artisans selling their products at crafts markets. You’ll also have the chance to taste delicious wines and tapas, and there will be several exhibits in the various museums in Málaga’s old town. At night, the fiesta will move on to the fairgrounds, where there will be funfair rides and live acts in its casetas.
