Visit The Seville Feria April Fair 2017 – six days of celebrations, music, dancing, drinking, and socialising until the early morning. What more could you want from a trip to Spain?
This is the Spring Fair in Seville, know as the Feria, that takes place every April and ends with a big bang at midnight with a firework display. A Spanish tradition since 1824, expect to see the Sevillanos letting their hair down, dressing up, and partying all night long. The fair takes place two weeks after Semana Santa (holy week preceding Easter) – this year it’s from 30th April to 6 May 2017 – and the whole city sets up for a huge party that takes place all day and all night. Visitors and tourists are welcome – and you can get costumes too!
If you’ve been to the Andalusian capital before you’ll know that it’s full of sunshine, orange blossom (and the wine too..) and flamenco – and these are all ingredients to having a great time at this traditional Andalusian Fair. Expect to see some amazing costumes, dancing, traditional drinks, music, horse carriages parading around the fairground from midday until the evening – and bullfighting for those who are into the sport.

To take part in the Seville Feria April Fair you need to head to the “Real de la Feria” which is an fairground with fair rides also and the famous ‘Hell Street’ (Calle De Infierno). The fairground is divided over 1,000 tent bars with food and music (casetas) that form a whole fairground of fun! A lot of these bars are private so make sure you find ones that are open to everyone and enjoy! Note – celebrating and drinking all night is an acceptable part of the celebrating, but you will need to pace yourself to enjoy the party! Olé!
