Malaga: Fiestas and Folklore

Malaga is an extraordinarily lively town, and the visitor will certainly find here anything he expects to find in Andalusia. Among the most attractive events during a year are the following:

On January, 6th the procession of the three Magi, an event specially appreciated by children.

Easter-Week is celebrated in Malaga, as in most of the large Andalusian towns, with impressive religious processions. Remarkable are specially the processions of Señor de los Gitanos on Monday and of Nuestro Padre Jesus el Rico on Wednesday.

The celebrations of Corpus Christi, in May, are most beautiful in the little village of Casabermeja close to Malaga. All the village is decorated with flowers, and the festivities take four days.

During the third week of August there is the traditional Feria de Verano, with Flamenco-music, people in regional dresses and an exposition of the most beautiful horses.

The final festivity of the year is the Fiesta Mayor de Verdiales on December 28 (April Fool's Day in Spain). Verdiales is a kind of Flamenco music which is typical for the province of Malaga. Basically, this festival is a contest of dance and song with groups from many of the villages around participating. However, the contest just serves as an excuse for a great party which will go on all night long - good music, good food and of course a lot of wine.
