Seville April Fair

A little spring magic to brighten up your day….originally a local livestock fair, feria de abril (April Fair) has grown to be the largest of its kind in southern Spain.  It starts two weeks after Easter which means that, although it is usually held in April, it can very occasionally take place in May or even start at the end of March.

These days the fair is famous for flamenco, but it also features a fairground with all the usual rides, horses, plenty of food and even more rebujito – the typical drink comprising sweet sherry and a soft mixer.

Those planning to visit the event should be warned, however: the casetas (tents) are private and not open to the general public so unless you have local friends with connections you´ll have to content yourself with walking around the perimeters.
