The Fair of August, or simply “Fair of Málaga”, is one of the most important an famous of the summer, both for the party in the city at night and day, and the bullfights in La Malagueta, what makes it an essential event.
The Fair of Málaga has its origin in 1487, when on 19 August the Catholic Kings took the city and incorporated it to the Crown of Castilla.
They agreed then to commemorate the date on an annual feast, and from 1491 onwards, the popular festivals were established. That year, a procession was held where the royal palio with which Málaga was won, from the Cathedral to the church of Santiago, and a bullfight. From the s. XVII began to use spectacles of fireworks.
And this arrive to our days like the great party of the summer in the Costa del Sol. They begin with the “pregón” and the fireworks; a “romería” with horses, carriages and people from the city accompany the standard bearer of the fair to the Sanctuary of Victory. The city is full of booths, lanterns, flowers, parades, musical shows with flamenco and copla as great protagonists.
It can be said that in the center there is a day fair, and in the “Cortijo de Torres”, which is the fairground, a night fair, although it maintains activities throughout the day.
The bullfighting fair is one of the most important and in the main bullfighters act on it.
