Nerja Feria 2015 will take place as it has done in previous years in the Calle Carabeo/Los Huertos car park area and some of the neighbouring streets.

The Feria consists of a large fairground surrounded by casitas (marquees) where live performances of music and dancing take place. There are many stalls selling food and drinks and each night the party and the noise goes on until the small hours.
Nerja Feria
The Feria is officially in honour of the patron saint of the town the Virgen de las Angustias and San Miguel Arcángel. At the end of September the patron saint is carried in a procession from the sanctuary of their chapel to El Salvador church on the Balcon de Europa. On the main day of the Feria the statue is carried back to the church accompanied by San Miguel Arcángel.

As part of the feria events, the Kings and Queens of the feria are elected along with Mister and Miss Nerja who then parade around town on a series of feria floats.
