A Multicultural Weekend of Culture, Folklore, Music and Gastronomy in Fuengirola

XXI Feria de los Pueblos de Fuengirola 2015As from tomorrow, Fuengirola celebrates one of the most important events in its calendar: The “Feria Internacional de los Pueblos” (International People’s Fair).

This unique fair has grown to become a reference at local, regional and even international level. From the 29th April to the 3rd May, the Fuengirola fair ground will be home to a fun and multicultural event for all the family.

In previous editions, this same event managed to attract over 1 million visitors! The town hall hopes to equal this impressive figure this year, thereby serving as a perfect stage to promote the virtues of Fuengirola and its multicultural population.

The fair will open to the public from 1:00 pm to 4:00 am – plenty of time for visitors to make their way around all the ‘casetas’ (stands) representing the countries taking part in the event. Each ‘caseta’ will be colourfully decorated with flags and other traditional items from each country. You’ll come across natives dressed in typical costumes, lots of music and dancing and you’ll also have the chance to purchase products and delicious food from each country.

The following countries and regions will be taking part in this year’s fair and will all have their own stands: Germany, Australia, Argentina, Andalucia, Brazil, Bolivia, Colombia, Cuba,  Egypt, Extremadura, France, Belgium,  Finland, Greece, Galicia, Hawaii, Jamaica, Great Britain,  Ireland, India, Galicia, Mexico, Morocco, Norway, Peru, Asturias, Basque Country, Portugal,  Dominican Republic, Madrid, Valencian Community, Bulgaria,  Uruguay and Venezuela.
