Puerto Santa Maria Fair
This fair celebrated in the Port of Santa Maria in Cadiz originated like many other fairs in Andalusia by the commerce of cattle, where during these marked dates, the cattle farmers from different provinces gathered together to commercialise in this “cattle fair”.
The location of the fair during the 60’s decade took place in the Victoria park, later on in the 70’s it moved to the Crevillet area and today it is held in the fairground of Las Banderas.
As time went by, the cattle fair disappeared and the night fair extended its festive hours where it began to have the typical elements of a fair today, like the fair huts, the typical music, the good food and the mechanical rides.
