Estepona Fair Ferias
Estepona, a municipality with a history that dates back to the Arab dominion, has 2 fairs of Christian origins throughout the year, the small fair (la feria chica) and the big fair (la feria mayor).
The small fair of Estepona (la feria chica)
During this celebration on the 15th of May they organise contests and cattle exhibitions, of agricultural machinery and of other countryside products.
The big fair of Estepona (la feria mayor)
On the 16th of July there is also a very popular event where the fishermen carry upon their shoulders a religious figure known as the “virgin of Carmen”, a procession that takes place on land and in the sea.
During the Estepona fair the streets are decorated and illuminated in a very popular event and that attracts many visitors each year.
Another festivity in Estepona is the night of San Juan, an originally pagan festivity that is celebrated on the night of the 23rd of June and consists in burning dummies/dolls and lighting bonfires throughout all the districts in Estepona and specially on the beach.
The three kings parade is celebrated on the 5th of January and the carnivals during the second week of February.
