The Feria de Abril is one of Spain’s biggest festivals of light, color and cuisine - not just in Seville but also celebrated around the world. Let’s see how it evolved from a trade fair for horses
Seville in Andalusia, Spain, is known for its history, art, music and culinary culture. One of the highlights in the city’s social calendar is the Feria de Abril - the April Fair. Now one of Spain’s most popular festivals, we take a look at how this has grown into a worldwide tribute to Seville.
It originally began as a trading fair for horses and livestock in 1946, but the Feria de Abril has since grown into a celebration of everything Andaluz - and not just in Seville! Cities around Spain replicate the flamenco style and cuisine in their own versions of the Feria de Abril each year. So what can you expect to find at the festival?
The Feria de Abril characterizes all the brilliance and color of the Sevillian spirit, giving us a very powerful image of the flavors, the flair and the traditions that are still upheld in the Andalusian capital. So, if you’re lucky enough to get an invitation to a caseta, be sure to RSVP!
