Fuengirola is a wonderful town to take a holiday. It has miles of Blue Flag beaches, a lovely marina, a reputation for excellent restaurants, a vibrant nightlife and great shopping. Over the past few years, it has also established a fantastic event calendar, with outstanding events which are a brilliant focus for a trip.
Here are just a few dates for your diary, to help you plan your Fuengirola holiday this year:
30th April-5th May – Feria de los Pueblos
Highly recommended for foodies and those interested in learning more about different countries through their cuisine, music and culture, the Feria de los Pueblos is a real feast for the senses. Held in the massive fairground area in Fuengirola, this food fair is a celebration of the many different nationalities that call Fuengirola home. There are around 35 stands, each representing a country or region, and sharing their iconic dishes with the crowds. You can see the country’s national dress, sample some of their drinks, listen to their music and join in with typical dances. You really can travel the world at this food festival!
This music festival has been running for many years and brings some fabulous artists to perform in the castle park in Fuengirola. There are many more acts to be announced, but here are a few you won’t want to miss.
4th May – Bob Dylan and his band perform
14th and 15th June – Rock the Coast – a two day festival for rock fans, featuring German rock legends Scorpions and Europe, with many more to still be announced
3rd July – Rod Stewart
October 6th – 12th – Fuengirola Feria
One of the last big parties of the year, Fuengirola Feria is at a great time if you’re looking for cheaper accommodation and flights, and cooler temperatures. One week of fun, flamenco, food and fairground rides, the feria is a great time to see Fuengirola come to life.
