Feria de Málaga in Andalucia
Be prepared for traditional costumes, live music and food stalls when you go to Málaga in mid-August.Every year, the city of Málaga in Andalucia bursts with excitement from 14-23 August with traditional costumes, live music, flamenco and food stalls with Andalusian cuisine.
During the day, traditionally dressed people are carried around in horse drawn carriages. Food stalls line the streets and people drink vino fino (sherry).
The Feria de Málaga is also the equivalent of San Isidro in Madrid, in that, it is the biggest bullfighting season of the year.
There are also nights dedicated to flamenco dance and music, peña music groups, pop and flamenco bands and competitions. Fireworks light up the port at night and the real de la feria (the real event) starts earlier that evening at the Cortijo de Torres.
