Fuengirola Fiestas

Spanish towns and cities are famous for their festivals (fiestas), and Fuengirola is no exception. There are many fiestas throughout its calendar, some larger than others. Here we list some of the more popular fiestas to look out for:-

 

Easter week is celebrated in a bigger way in Andalucia than in the rest of the country. Neighbouring towns compete with one another in terms of the size and grandeur of events. Festivities in Fuengirola are well worth visiting. They take the form of various (often moving) religious processions through the town streets. 

On July 15th-16th local sailors honour their patroness La Virgen del Carmen. An effigy of the patroness is paraded through the streets of Los Boliches (Fuengirola's fishing district) and down to the Marina. There she is set aboard a flower laden craft trailed by a flotilla of fishing boats. The evening culminates with much dancing and singing, as well as many fireworks.

Every town/village in Andalucia province has its own summer feria/fair; Fuengirola's summer fair takes place from the 6th-12th of October and is held in honour of the Virgen del Rosario (Virgin of the Rosary). Events take place in the town streets and take the form of much eating, drinking, singing and dancing. There are processions with Spanish horses, and many people dressed up in traditional flamenco style. The evenings move towards the Recinto Ferial (public fairground) area on the outskirts of the town where there is much singing, dancing and yet more eating and drinking; though organised entertainment is laid out here both for children and adults. Events culminate with a grandeus firework display.

 

Precise dates cannot be given for many of the above festivities, due to ever changing dates. The best advice we can give for those planning their holiday at fiesta time is to contact the Fuengirola tourist office. Their contact details are as follows: -
