The Malaga Fair 2013

La Feria de Malaga, or the Malaga fair, takes place every year during the month of August to commemorate the taking of the city by the Catholic Monarchs on the 18 August 1487 during the Reconquista.

The festivities consist of 10 nights and 9 days of celebration starting on a Friday night, and kicking off with a magnificent firework display, and ending on a Sunday. Different events go on throughout the city during the feria, categorized mainly into “feria de noche” (night) and “feria de día” (day). The night time fair takes place at the big fairground on the edge of the city, and lasts from 9pm until sunrise. In true Spanish style, there is food, drinking, dancing and live music.
