Nerja Feria Big WheelNerja Feria 2016 officially gets underway on Saturday October the 8th 2016 and 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 opening ceremony will be held on the Balcon de Europa starting at 11am with live music. Events carry on through the day culminating in a sound and light spectacular at 8pm after which the Feria itself will be open. The last day of this year’s Feria will be on Wednesday the 12th of October.

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 – this takes place on Monday the 10th at 12.30pm.
