Fair and Major Festivities


With the arrival of the month of July, from the first Tuesday of this month until Sunday, Estepona lives its Fair and Major Festivities. For six days and six nights everything is a party, because the Fair floods everything with that special atmosphere that only Andalusia can offer. This is the time of year when it shines with all its splendor, when residents and tourists jump into a few days of fun, when the hustle and bustle more invites to go out, to eat and dine on the terraces and booths, to meet friends.

During the night the fairground is illuminated with thousands of bulbs, it is dressed in colors, music and fun. On the first day the parade of giants and big heads, accompanied by the band of horns and drums and the noise of the rockets, herald the beginning of the fair. This same day the Proclamation and the coronation of the youthful and infantile Queens and Ladies take place.

The Real de la Feria is inaugurated with the ribbon cutting by the Mayor and the attractions are already starting to work and the music is playing in the booths. Throughout the week, a series of activities will take place in the official booth, such as a children’s party, a party for the elderly and performances by orchestras, flamenco groups and renowned artists.
