Estepona Feria

Estepona Feria is a week-long holiday, long-awaited and anticipated by the residents and visitors to this very Spanish tourist resort.

Estepona Feria: What to Expect

For almost a week, the town is filled music, colour, dancing, float parades and folkloric shows. The fair is divided into two parts: day and night.

During the day, you will find most of the action at the local bars. Residents and visitors come together to enjoy manzanilla wine, music and dancing.

At night, the fun moves to the Fairgrounds, with numerous booths and attractions for all ages.

One of the most anticipated activities takes place at the opening gala of the fair: the proclamation and coronation of the Queen, Children's, Youth and Senior Ladies. On the final Saturday afternoon and night, the traditional procession of horse-drawn carriages takes place carrying the queen and ladies of the fair.
