The Seville Fair, or ‘Feria de abril de Sevilla’ in Spanish, is one of the most amazing events in Spain. It is an annual event that takes usually place two weeks after Semana Santa in the Andalusian capital of Seville (Sevilla) in Spain.
The event consists of a large fairground with ‘casetas’ – which are large tents that are owned by families, associations, or other public and private organizations. The fairground is close to the banks of the Guadalquivir River, which runs through Seville. For an outsider, it is not always easy to fully engage in the event. Try to make it into some of the tents, and you’ll have the best time of your life.
Is this event suitable for children? Absolutely, there are lots of kids around. Just keep in mind that the fairground and the tents are very busy, and lots of alcohol (mainly manzanilla – a fino sherry from Sanlúcar de Barrameda) is served. So, depending on the age of the kids – it’s important to watch out for them.
The location is a bit outside of the city center, in the area called Los Remedios. You can either walk (about 25min from the cathedral), take public transport, or a taxi.
