With just over two weeks to go to the start of the Nerja Feria, work has already started preparing the feria ground at the car park between Los Huertos and Calle Carabeo. The car park itself will be closed before the feria and all vehicles parked there will have to be removed.

The Feria consists of a large fairground surrounded by casitas (marquees) where live perfomances 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.

The Feria is officially in honour of the patron saint of the town the Virgen de las Angustias and San Miguel Arcángel. On Saturday the 29th of September at 8.30pm the patron saint is carried in a procession from Plaza de la Ermita de Nuestra Señora de las Angustias (near to the Mercadona supermarket) to El Salvador church on the Balcon de Europa. On the 10th of October at 8.30pm the statue is carried back to the church accompanied by San Miguel Arcángel.

The official programme of events for the feria haven’t been announced yet, but local singer Antonio Cortes will be performing on the 12th.
