Fair in Fuengirola

When: 6th to 12th of October every year

Price: Access to the fair ground is absolutely free. In the casetas you can buy food and drinks. Throughout the fair there are plenty of free concerts and dance performances inside the casetas or on the street.

Location: The event takes place on the fair ground, ie where the market usually takes place on the border between Fuengirola and Los Boliches.

There is a lot of flamenco dancing during this Fair and the whole city is covered in a festive mood. On 7th of October there is an absolutely fantastic firework at 9 p.m. All Spaniards are dressed up in their flamenco outfits and they are not only partying on the fair ground but everywhere in the city.

At the entrance to the fair ground there is a rather noisy amusement area with rides, roller coaster and various other activities. Inside the actual fair ground served much good food and drinks, and the party usually goes on to the wee hours. If you enter the various Casetas in the evening you can experience genuine flamenco, not the kind that you normally find in tourist resorts and you can truly feel how Spaniards let themselves be carried away by their national music.

Most shops and businesses are closed during the Fair, representing the termination of a very hectic tourist season. 7th of october is a local holiday in Fuengirola, while the 12th of october is a national holiday.

Horses at Feria del Rosario in Fuengirola

Horses at the fair

Feria del Rosario is known to be one the largest "horse fairs" on the Costa del Sol. Many horse riders from the entire Costa del Sol area arrive either riding or on a horse-drawn carriage. It is not uncommon for riders to take a beer on the way to the fair ground. The horses are obviously parked outside the pub in the meantime.

About one week before the fair, there is a Romeria in Las Lagunas in the Esparragal picnic park along the Fuengirola river. In 2018 the Romeria is on 30. September.

Fuengirola is a small holiday resort with 75,000 inhabitants and between 200,000 and 400,000 tourists. Fuengirola is located midway between Malaga and Marbella. It takes about 30 minutes by car from Malaga or Marbella. The city is suitable for anyone who likes to be in the sun. If you think it is too crowded in August, you can always go to the suburb of Caravajal to rent a comfortable hammock or Torreblanca which is a bit more spacious. The area of Fuengirola is completely melted together with the city of Mijas Costa.

Fuengirola has one of the nicest and longest beaches on the entire coast. Several years in a row, almost all the beaches in Fuengirola have been awarded with the "Blue Flag" which is a quality designation that goes on purity, availability and ease of use.
