Every town and village in Andalucia has its own ‘feria’ or fair. They all have music, food, drinks, stalls, rides and your chance to win that pink furry toy by hitting a balloon with a wonky dart. The Spanish love to party and feria week is no exception. Summer feria week is different in every town so …wherever you are in Spain it seems you can find a feria every week!
Streets are closed to traffic, shops shut, tables and chairs are set up, and bars serve food and drink in the street. Music is played throughout the day and people of all ages enjoy singing and dancing. Visitors are always welcome.
At night, the fair shifts to the public fairground or “recinto ferial” on the outskirts of the town. There is a traditional amusement park with lots of rides, things to win and music for all ages to enjoy.
