Almuñécar’s 'feria' starts on Wednesday 9 August with the daytime event boasting 18 ‘casetas’ with different programmes of music, dancing and entertainment for children. The evening fairground has nine different 'casetas', each again with their own programme of entertainment.

There are sports, social and children's activities every morning on Puerta del Mar beach, the municipal band plays in Plaza de la Constitución and there will be fandango and sevillanas dancing. On each day of the fair entrance is free to San Miguel Castle and the Siete Palacios caves.

The official opening takes place on Wednesday at 12pm with balloons being released in the Plaza de la Constitución and a local wine-tasting event as well as the inaugural street parade organised by the GranaMusic association. This will be followed at 12.30pm by a puppet show. Later on, at 9.45pm the fairground will be officially opened with the switching on of the lights and the rides and attractions will open at 10pm.

Thursday 10 August is children’s day and the highlights will be water activities including slides and splash pools at Puerta del Mar beach from 11am to 1pm.
