Malaga Fair, Malaga, Spain
12 Aug 2023 - 19 Aug 2023
La Feria de Malaga (Malaga Fair) is one of the most important and popular Andalusian summer fairs. It origins date back to the 15th century and it commemorates the reconquering of Málaga by the Catholic Monarchs that took place the 19th August 1487. Eating and drinking are two of the main things to do at Feria of Malaga, of course!
Once you get to the city, you will notice that there are pink wine barrels everywhere. Why? Well, they belong to a local sweet wine brand called Cartojal which is, by far, the most popular drink in Malaga Fair! It is made with Moscatel grapes and, unlike the rest of Malaga’s Wines, this is not dark but light pale yellow. You can also try the Rebujito, a traditional Andalusian cocktail for locals-only to drink during Feria Time. As for food, cold or hot tapas like fried eggplants, peppers, Spanish omelettes, salmorejo or fried fish can be found almost everywhere.
