Enjoy the fair
In Mid-August Malaga fills with colour and becomes a magical, lively city of joy.
All over the city you can sample good wine, listen to music and enjoy the most traditional Malaga dances, "verdiales" and "malagueñas".
The Malaga Fair offers the chance to try something different, from horse parades in the streets to museums that stay open all day or exhibitions in the city centre.
The most unusual thing about this fair, and the thing that makes it different from others, is that it is held at two different venues: there is the city centre fair and the one at the "Real de la Feria" ground, at "Cortijo de Torres", which is designed specifically for fair stalls, marquees and all kinds of attractions.
You should not forget to visit the Malaga Bullfighting Fair either, the biggest summer event of its type in Spain. La Malagueta Bullring does its Sunday best to offer spectators the finest bullfighting events.
What to eat
Don't leave the fair with an empty stomach. Be sure to sample the huge variety of "tapas" and typical Malaga food. From "sopas perotas" (tomato and garlic soup poured onto bread), typical of Álora, to "porra antequerana" (cold tomato soup made with bread) and typical fried fish and Malaga-style salad.
All washed down with a good glass of "Cartojal", the most popular wine at the Fair. This is a typical wine from Malaga, produced from Muscatel grapes. It is sweet and is served very cold. Pace yourself, though, it goes down great but packs a punch and the fair goes on until late...
How to arrive
If you are in the city centre and prefer to enjoy the city centre Fair, then it is easy. The place to start is in "Marqués de Larios" street. Nevertheless, if you want to head out to the "Real de la Feria", you can use your vehicle, but we suggest you to use the public transport.
Check the timetables of the city buses that run to the "Real". The Malaga Transport Company (EMT) runs extra services to make more bearable your stay in the Malaga Fair.
