The Feria de Abril, or April Fair, is one of the largest and most international fairs in Spain. It has become a Festival of International Tourist Interest because of the joy and folklore that are key elements during the fair. The Feria de Abril is one of the most, if not the most, famous, Andalusian festivals, and it is held in the capital of Andalusia, Seville, every year. It is not only celebrated in Andalusia, but also in the two major cities of Spain, Madrid and Barcelona. And this is due to the large number of Andalusian immigrants, who decided to leave their place to find luck in other places. Today, ShMadrid will share all you need to know about the April Fair that takes place in the capital of Spain; one of the most popular fairs along with the fair in Seville itself.

The Feria de Abril is one of the most anticipated events for thousands of lovers of Andalusian culture, its music and its dances and, of course, its delicious gastronomy. This important event, which combines the temperament of southern Spain with its joy and its desire to have a good time, is held in the capital of Spain in order to pay tribute to the Andalusian immigrants, so that they feel that part of their heritage and culture is also present in Madrid. The 24th and 25th of May are the days chosen for this celebration in the capital, which is later than the regular dates for the original event, but perhaps it ensures better weather this way. After the success of past editions, the WiZink Center will once again have a large, decorated tent as the main location for this authentic Sevillian event. And for the third year in a row, there will be much singing and dancing, as well as the best Andalusian gastronomy, and let’s not forget the rebujito cocktails.
