The Feria of Malaga 2019 is here! This year the fair of Malaga is here to make an impression, and a good one at that. It will begin on a Wednesday and last a week and a half. If you’re not here to enjoy it during at least one of the ten days you’re really missing out. Everything is ready for Wednesday, August the 15th, when the traditional fireworks will kick off the Fair of Malaga for 2019. Do you want to know everything that’s in store for us this year? Let’s start!
How did the Fair of Malaga 2018 go?
The last fair exceeded the expectations of the attendees thanks to the infinite amount of organized activities. With verdiales, concerts, good atmosphere, activities for children, tents, attractions, sports and lots of parties. The mayor himself, Francisco de la Torre, concluded the balance of the fair with the following phrase: “It has been the best in the history of the city.” Something of which we are more than proud since it has been shown that it is possible to combine living the Fair with intensity and also respecting the city.
Poster of the Malaga Fair 2019
This year we have a poster inspired by the most emblematic places and the verdiales. A total of 102 works competed to be the chosen poster, of which five finalists were selected. In the end, the poster nicknamed “the goddess Malaga” was elected with a total of 39.39% of the vote.
Fátima Giménez Miralles, designer of the poster of the Malaga Fair 2019, has been awarded 3,600 euros and has recognized that “Malaga is a city that has one of the greatest historical riches in Europe”, this along with its history is what has given her the inspiration for the creation of the poster for the fair of Malaga 2019.
Activities at the Feria of Malaga 2019
Like every year, the fair is held around the week of August 19, commemorating the Reconquest of Malaga by the Catholic Monarchs and their incorporation into the Crown of Castile. In addition as you have already heard, this year will take place from Thursday 15th to August 24th, one day more than last year due to the coincidence of the holidays, so it has been sought that both days, 15 and August 19 are included in the Fair. This extension has pleased the hotel sector that has good forecasts of tourist influx for the Feria of Malaga 2019.
During these days there is a considerable increase in visitors in the city and accommodation options get fully booked quickly, if you have not had time to look for a hotel or you’re directly looking for something cheaper for these days, you can look at centric apartments in Malaga where you can stay with friends, family or your partner and just worry about having a good time. The best thing about staying in centric apartments during the fair? That you can have at street level, all of the action during the day, but at night the activity calms down, and the fair continues in the Cortijo de Torres, so that you can rest (if you wish) in your accommodation.
The Cortijo de Torres fairground is in full transformation and decoration of its tents to host ”camperos”, horses, gypsies and joy in general. At night, the fair changes color and the parties begin until the early hours of the morning for those who want to continue at the fair of Malaga 2019 until the end. In addition to the youngest and most daring, at the Malaga fair, as in any other, you can ride in any of its innumerable attractions and give yourself that dose of adrenaline you need.
From Valentina Home we wish you a happy Malaga Fair 2019 to all Malaga, visitors, tourists and lovers of good traditions. The countdown to the quintessential party of the city of Malaga begins, we are waiting for you!
