Based around the religious festivals honouring the Virgen de las Angustias and San Miguel Arcángel, the festival includes traditional flamenco dance and music, folklore performances, sporting and cultural events, music concerts, beauty pageants, carnaval style floats, processions, fireworks and a funfair!
The Nerja Feria always includes October 10th, the Fiesta del Virgen de las Angustias and San Miguel Arcángel which is a holiday in Nerja and October 12th, the Fiesta del Virgen del Pilar, the patron saint of the Guardia Civil which is a bank holiday across Spain.
The funfair occupies the central part of the feria ground (Parking Carabeo) which is surrounded by large tented areas known as "casetas", where various different organisations stage all sorts of activities, including the election of the "Reina y Caballero" (Festival King and Queen). Each "caseta" has its own bar and offers food - and at night, these come alive with music and dancing until the early hours! Get your Flamenco dress on and enjoy the atmosphere!
The "Tutti-Frutti" area will also come alive every day of the Feria from 13:00 to 22:00 with live music.
Most events are free - although some of the music concerts have a small entrance fee.
