April fair

The biggest party in Seville is the April Fair. It is celebrated every year on the dates after Easter, in general, two weeks after Holy Week and starting in the month of April.

For its celebration, they arrange an urbanized fairground of over 1,000,000 square meters, next to the neighbourhood of Los Remedios, near the marina and the Guadalquivir River. They install marquee tents, amusement parks, parking and other services.

Currently, visitors, apart from the usual means of transport used in other years to reach the exhibition, now have two new metro stops nearby.

The fair starts Monday night with the traditional dinner of ‘pescaíto' (fried fish) and the turning on the 'alumbrao' (lighting), and ends on Sunday.

The origins of the April Fair date back to 1846. Today, the event has become the flagship holiday in the city of Seville, a festival that is enjoyed by many from Seville, friends, visitors and tourists.

Noted for its gaudiness and colouring is the monumental entrance to the fair each year, dedicated to a city monument or historical celebration, along with the street décor in the fairgrounds, the lighting and the marquee tents.

The fair is different during the day and night. During the day (from 12:00 to 20:00), in addition to eating, drinking and dancing, the most beautiful thing is a journey around the fairgrounds in a horse-drawn carriage, or by Jinete. While circulating the grounds you can see the huge number of carriages and Jinetes’ wandering between the booths. The carriages are limited to odd or even, according to their number plates. The Jinetes’ and horse-drawn carriages, in the afternoon, also travel towards the centre of the city and the bullring.

At night, the party is a highlight, the Sevillana dancing, the flamenco and having drinks with friends in the stands until dawn.

Enthusiastic

The fairs in Seville, despite the crisis, are no different. It's a return to the customs of the past.

People of Seville decked out in regional costumes, still tailored to the most outrageous fashion show actualities, are transfigured into beings of the past, exposing our most genuine ethnicity.

The fair is not just dancing, singing and cured ham, it’s the people. The thousands of people from Seville that fill the streets give it the stamp that makes it unique and unrivalled.

A beautiful, authentic fair

It's a beautiful fair, the Seville fair is authentic. It is the capital of Andalusia, and therefore stands out from the other provinces the reflection of the lights in the water.

My visit was to all of Andalusia, but among all the cities and towns I visited, Seville stood out among them. Do not visit Seville in summer. In August it is very, very, very hot, autumn and spring are perfect for visiting.
