The Fair of Fuengirola

The Fair of Fuengirola, in honour of its patroness, the Virgen del Rosario, is just around the corner as, like every year, it will take place from October 6th to 12th.

The fair is one of the most important events on the Costa del Sol and is held at the Fairground, although the streets and bars in the city center will also be filled with a festival atmosphere.

The Fairground has 32 booths open to all visitors. There, you can enjoy good wine and serrano ham among many other things, enjoy typical music and dances, and also admire beautiful flamenco dresses.

On Friday, October 6th, the first day of the fair, the opening speech and the lighting of the fairground will take place.

The 7th is the most important day as it's the day of the Virgen del Rosario, and for this reason, a traditional flamenco mass is celebrated in her honour. The mass takes place in the center of Fuengirola, specifically in the Constitution Square at the doors of the church dedicated to this Virgin. The popular and crowded mass is followed by a beautiful procession of carriages and horses heading to the Fairground. The horse is one of the main protagonists of the fair, and therefore, equestrian activities have special significance.

In Fuengirola, the fair is celebrated both day and night. During the day, finos wine and sevillanas dances delight Fuengiroleños and visitors, while at night, the spotlight is also shared with the amusements.

If you're fortunate to be at Hotel Angela during these days, don't hesitate for a second. Visit the center of Fuengirola and the Fairground and experience the fair. We're sure you've never seen anything like it before.

Additionally, on Friday the 6th at 12:00 P.M we will have a special activity about the fair and Saturday the 7th, also at 12:00 P.M we will have a "rebujito" demo, the most typical drink of the fair. Both activities will take place at the Terrace of the Snack Bar. The fair of Fuengirola is a unique and unforgettable event, so we hope you'll share your photos, opinions, and comments with us on our Facebook page. ¡¡Olé!¡
