As we said in our last post about holidaying around Malaga, Fuengirola is an excellent holiday destination due to the amazing beaches, restaurants, shopping, eating out and activities for all the family. What we didn’t mention, was the great events programme that this vibrant town runs each year. There’s almost always something going on, but here are a few highlights that you should put into your diary, which are a great reason for a trip.
The first one of the year is the Feria Internacional de los Pueblos, which is being held from the 27th of April to the 1st of May in 2017. This is a celebration of the huge range of nationalities which call Fuengirola home, and showcases their music, dance, culture and most importantly their food! You can wander around the “casetas” or little houses which each represent a different place, listen to their music and try some of their most delicious and emblematic dishes. Make sure you come hungry though, last year there were more than 30 places represented including Italy, France, Argentina, the UK, Egypt, Greece, Venezuela, Senegal and India. There are also parades, performances and a brilliant atmosphere. Stalls open from 1pm each day and close at 4am and it’s always an amazing party.
The next date for your diary is the Fiesta de San Juan on the 23rd of June, one of the best parties of the year here on the Costa del Sol. This festival is all about celebrating the longest night of the year by building a bonfire on the beach, eating, drinking and making merry. Check out our guide on how to celebrate San Juan Spanish style to find out more about this great festival.
They celebrate San Juan all along the Costa del Sol, but Fuengirola really makes the most of it with a street party in the Boquetillo area, with music, food, drinks and entertainment for the kids. This is a great way to try some of the delicious Spanish food, party like a local and start the summer in style and this continues for several nights after San Juan too, so you don’t have to miss out on the bonfires.
In July and August the emblematic Sohail Castle hosts regular concerts with Spanish and International acts flying in to perform in this amazing venue. They haven’t announced any acts for this year as yet, but keep your eye on the Fuengirola events calendar on the Fuengirola Town Hall website for upcoming performances. Also during this time there’s the Medieval Market and the Oktoberfest, dates for this year to be confirmed, but keep checking the calendar.
Finally, October 6th-12th is the Fuengirola Fair, a week of brilliant partying day and night, where the whole town comes out to celebrate. It’s a great time to visit the Costa del Sol, with cheaper flights, and cooler temperatures.
This is just the tip of the iceberg of all of the great events taking place in Fuengirola and whenever you’re coming we have some brilliant Fuengirola holiday rentals for you.
