Malaga - Feria 2019 starts off with a firework display

State of exception up until August 24

By far, the 'Feria de Málaga' is the biggest summer fair in the Mediterranean region. This year, celebrations will take place day and night from August 15 to 24. The 'Feria de día' (day fair) will take place in the city centre and the 'Feria de noche' (night fair) will be located at the fairground next to the congress centre. Basically, the Feria is all about dancing and drinking 24/7. A few cultural events will take place here and there as well, like the Romeria, which will take place on Thursday.

This evening, at midnight, the Feria will kick off with a huge firework display in the port of Malaga.

Since the Feria is also a very popular meeting point for sexual approaches, numerous organisers have been pointing out the rules again. When a woman says 'No', men need to take off (no matter how much progress the man believed to have made). You should only intensify your efforts and continue, if a woman said 'Si' loud and clear. For the male visitors from abroad: There is a Spanish law only for women called 'Violencia de género'. If a woman files charges, the presumption of innocence fades into the background and you go directly to prison. The balancing act between pick-up line and sexual harassment is not always clear and the woman is always in the right in case of doubt. Therefore, in any case, respect a 'No'!!

Party animals travelling by car should know that the outskirts are best for parking. We recommend the area in the west of Malaga, around the Palacio de Deportes Jose Maria Martin Carpena, where you can park for free and get to the city centre comfortably by taking the underground (metro).

Of course, the weather will play along as well. It remains summery warm and sunny with peak temperatures of +- 30 °C.
