Fuengirola’s main fairground is ready to host the ever-popular ‘Feria Internacional de los Paises’ (International People’s Fair), a multicultural event where visitors can experience the rich cultural diversity the city has to offer.

Just a quick heads up… a few years ago the fair changed its name from ‘Feria Internacional de los Pueblos’ to ‘Feria Internacional de los Paises’ (International Countries Fair). That being said, the logo and unifying spirit of the fair remains the same.

This year the Fair will last 5 days from Wednesday 1st May to Sunday 5th May 2024.

For those of you who have yet to visit the Feria de Los Pueblos, it really is a must-see event where you’ll be treated to beautiful music from all over the world, delicious mouth-watering foods (The Argentinian Barbecue is highly recommended :-)), traditional dances and a dazzling display of colourful costumes.

The 33 countries taking part this year are the following: 

Dominican Republic, Paraguay, Spain, Cuba, Australia, Turkey, Japan, Bolivia, Germany, Argentina, Puerto Rico, Greece, Belgium, Colombia, Brazil, India, Ireland, Hawaii, Romania, Venezuela, Peru, Morocco, Bulgaria, United States, Mexico, Finland, Sweden, Senegal, Italy, Jamaica, Great Britain and Uruguay.

In previous years the fair has managed to attract nearly one million visitors, cementing its reputation as one of the most popular and successful events on the local calendar.

The fair will be open to the public from 1.00pm to 4.00am on Friday and Saturday and from 1:00pm to 2:00am on Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday. There’s plenty of time for you to explore all the stands and enjoy the uniqueness of each country’s culture and traditions.

Be sure not to miss the colourful Street Parade (with over 1000 participants) which will take place at 11:30am on Wednesday 1st May; All the countries exhibiting at the fair will be showing off their artistic talents (singing and dancing) as they make their way down the main Fairground Boulevard and through the streets of Fuengirola.
