25th International Festival of Fuengirola

29Apr

Are you currently having a great holiday with us at Hotel Yaramar? If that is the case, you can consider yourself lucky as one of the most important and awaited events in Fuengirola starts tomorrow.

The event we are talking about is the International Festival of Fuengirola, one of the most popular events in Costa del Sol.

As usual the festival will be hosted at the fairground, and this year it will be on from Tuesday the 30th of April till Sunday the 5th of May.

The fairground will home a total of 33 countries from across the globe, so this is no doubt the perfect opportunity to discover their local dishes, culture and typical music and dances without leaving Costa del Sol.

The International Festival of Fuengirola is one of the most consolidated and successful events in Costa del Sol and this is why this year we will be celebrating its 25th anniversary.

Although it has been hosted for many years, there is always something new and exciting about it. This year for example Canada and Estonia will participate in it for the first time and Japan and Jamaica will return after being absent last year.

While the festival is on, from 1:00 P.M to 4:00 A.M there will be lots of things going on and lots  to do at the fairground, though the most expected day is always when the traditional parade takes place. This year this stunning parade will be on Wednesday the 1st of May, which is a bank holiday in Spain as it is International Workers Day. The parade will start around 11:30 A.M in Plaza de España (town centre) and will arrive to the fairground at around 1:00 P.M.

Same as in previous editions there will be a free entry International Trade Fair that will contain some stalls where you will have the chance to all kind of products, including food from different countries.

Do not miss the 25th edition of the International Festival of Fuengirola! We are sure you will have a brilliant time!!
