Fair Ground Fuengirola , Fuengirola
The official opening ceremony takes place on the evening of the 6th October in the Palacio de la Paz, but it’s the party at the Fair ground which attracts most people.
Access to the fair ground is 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.
There is a lot of flamenco dancing during this Fair and the whole city is covered in a festive mood. On first day of the Fair there is an absolutely fantastic firework at night. 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.
Horses at the fair
Feria del Rosario is known to be the largest “horse fair” 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.
