Beer festival in fuengirola

Poster for the Festival

From the 22nd July to the 1st August, you can enjoy a slightly different experience during your holidays by visiting the Beer Festival in Fuengirola’s Sohail Castle.

The festival is in its 3rd year now and is basically the Costa del Sol’s version of the Oktoberfest! You’ll have the chance to sample a great selection of wheat beers and tuck in to some typical German dishes; sausages, roast pork, german burgers and sauerkraut, will all be on the menu. Children’s entertainment and live performances throughout the week also help to make this event a fun day out for the whole family.

Just a few stats to give you an idea of the popularity of the event: last year over 100,000 people made their way to the Sohail Castle for the event and managed to drink approximately 30,000 litres of beer!!!

If you would like to visit the festival, just head on down to Fuengirola as from Thursday the 22nd July. Doors – or should I say drawbridge, remember it is in a castle – open at 19:00hrs from Monday to Friday and at 12:00hrs on weekends. Access is free but I am afraid the beer isn’t!!!!

The first English speaking wedding show on the Costa del Sol took place last weekend. The Perfect Wedding Expo was held at the Palacio de la Paz in the Fuengirola fairground. It was the first wedding fair I have attended and I was pleasantly surprised by the atmosphere and the great turn-out of both exhibitors and visitors. There were suppliers present for everything from delicious chcoolate fountains, beautiful wedding dress and evening gown designs to diamonds and jewellery as well as florists, planners and photographers, making it the one stop shop for any bride to be, planning their wedding on the coast. Myself, Claire – our wedding co ordinator and Kerry – our wedding planner looked after the Sunset Beach Club stand, click here to take a look at our stand!
