Fuengirola International Fair
From Wednesday 1st to Sunday 5th May 2024.
Fuengirola has experienced significant population growth, becoming a town in which citizens from different cultures and from different Autonomous Communities of the Spanish State as well as from the rest of the world, all live together.
With the intention of creating awareness of the customs, folklore, gastronomy and cultural, historical and tourist attractions of each inhabitant of our multicultural town, in 1994 a project was set up which over the years has become one of the most important events of this nature on the Costa del Sol, the International Trade Fair.
The Fuengirola International Fair is organised jointly by the Department of Tourism of the Town Council of Fuengirola, and the different national and foreign associations, entities, clubs and collectives located within the municipality. These national and international groups that participate in the event rely on the institutional collaboration provided by the communication media, Town Councils, District Councils, Autonomous Fuengirola International Fair, facilitating better promotion of the products, tourist destinations, cultural facilities and folklore of same.
FIP, as the Fuengirola International Fair is currently known, takes place every year, between the months of April and May, with free entry to the permanent Fuengirola fairground.
By visiting this event, you can experience a tour around the world in four days. Infectious and interactive music, played by authentic bands who are visiting from their countries of origin for the express purpose of performing in this Fair. Delicious dishes, prepared with all the colour and flavour to transport us, through the palate, to faraway countries and communities. Exotic drinks, intense flavours indigenous to each culture. Exhibition and sale of typical products...
The ideal place and time to live a unique experience, stepping up to the window on the world and enjoying the more than thirty three countries and communities represented.Governments, Embassies and Consulates, all of whom lend their support to notably improve the presence of their country or region at the Fair.
MARENOSTRUM FUENGIROLA is one of the most spectacular outdoor music venues due to its proximity to the sea and the view of the monumental Sohail Castle.
In its few years of life, this festival has been able to attract the most prestigious national and international groups, thus achieving a great worldwide projection.
It was the venue chosen for the only stop in the EU on Jennifer López's tour, but it has been visited by such prestigious figures as Ricky Martin, Bob Dylan, Sting, Alejandro Fernández, Santana and Manuel Carrasco, among many others.
