Fairs and festivals on the Costa del Sol
by: Marbella Family

The big festival which takes place in any city in Spain is usually the "feria", or local fair. Because the fair is usually a week long event starting on a Monday and ending on a Sunday every year the dates change slightly. Generally, the one in Marbella takes place during the second week in June and the feria in Mijas is held on the second week in September. If you would like a list of the other fairs taking place on the Costa del Sol as well as a bit more information on what a "feria" is then take a look at our page on Ferias in Spain.

Other festivals organized by local town halls are published on the official city websites, where we usually take our information from. Unfortunately, they don´t publish exact dates until about a month in advance. I know, it´s very annoying. But you can roughly see what´s going on here:

Marbella official website

Also, we have a list of popular festivals and events taking place in Marbella and the surrounding area which you may be interested in looking at.

Here is a list of some of the main holidays listed on the Mijas website. Again, some of the dates may change annually, so return to the official Mijas website regularly to find updates.
