AFTER a two year hiatus due to COVID-19, Malaga will once again host its traditional August Feria.

The week-long festivities has been approved by Malaga’s City Council who have indicated that the feria will take place between August 13 and 20.

The fun will kick off at midnight on Friday 12th with the opening speech and the usual fireworks and will conclude the following Saturday.

The Malaga Feria has its origins in a historical date. It celebrates the reconquest of the city by the Catholic kings (Isabel of Castile and Fernando II of Aragon) on August 18, 1487 and this year’s week of festivities is expected to be full of activities for all ages and free performances by various artists giving a much-needed boost to small businesses hard hit by the pandemic, especially in the tourism-reliant sectors, from hotels to restaurants to taxi drivers.

“The current health situation regarding coronavirus allows us to be optimistic and announce the celebration of the Feria, although we will have to keep our fingers crossed that there are no drastic changes in the pandemic which could lead to further suspensions.” said a spokesperson from the City Council.

The appropriate safety Protocol to make the feria safe in the face of COVID-19 such as temperature checks, hand sanitiser stations and bigger stands is still to be outlined by the City Council.

This feria is the biggest fair in Andalucia, together with the Feria de Sevilla.
