Every year thousands of people visit Malaga for the city’s annual feria to be treated to a celebration of local culture in a party-like atmosphere.
Commemorating the incorporation of Malaga to the Crown of Castile by the Catholic Monarchs the feria celebrates the arrival of Queen Isabella I of Castile and King Ferdinand II of Aragon when they entered Malaga on August 19th, 1487.
When is the Feria de Malaga?
The feria now runs from August 15th through to Saturday, August 24th.
Where in Malaga is it?
The feria takes place in the city centre and the Cortijo de Torres feria ground.
Food & Drink
Just like the Feria in Seville, Malaga has plenty of marquees set up where you can eat and drink, but unlike Seville, most of Malaga’s tents are free to enter.
At the Cortijo de Torres, feria goers will have over 120 stalls to shop at that also include food and drink from all over Spain.
What to wear
August is of course still hot in Malaga so no need for a jacket, make sure to wear comfortable shoes though as you are bound to do a lot of walking.
How to get there
The city centre and Cortijo de Torres are well-serviced by public transport.
