Sharing is caring!

Seville April Fair - cover

If you have never been to Seville April Fair I would tell you it’s one of those things that you have to live at least once in life. Because? For the fun it entails, for the proximity of its people, to learn how to dance the Sevillians if you don’t know how yet, and because for a few days you get away from it all and have fun.

Sevillians really enjoy this festival which is so much theirs and together with Holy Week (recently passed) I would dare say that these are the two big things to enjoy and experience in Seville.

Dates and a bit of its history

The April Fair in Seville this year has its start date tuesday 12 april with the lighting test which will start at 00:00. It is from there that we can start the fair. In this lighting, thousands of bulbs are lit which illuminate the entrance and the streets of the enclosure (more than 350,000 bulbs). It ends on Sunday April 17 at 12:00 p.m. with the launch of a fireworks display (typical in almost all fairs and pilgrimages). The very night when the lighting takes place is known as “the night of the little fish”.

Seville April Fair - People

The April Fair in Seville was held in order to encourage the sevillians of the year 1842. At the end of that year, a hurricane devastated Seville. The Sevillians weren’t there for much joy at that time and badly needed a boost that would make them get rid of so much accumulated sadness (the city had also been in an economic crisis for some time). It was then that two councilors of the municipality had this brilliant idea: to recover the two typical fairs of Seville, this one in April and another held in September, already granted by law around the year 1254 by King Alfonso X El Sabio.

And so the first April Fair in modern times was born. It was approved by the city council on September 18, 1846 and inaugurated on April 18, 1847 in the San Sebastián meadow, with a total of 19 stalls.

It was such a success that year after year the fair could not be missed. In fact, Seville, which as we have already said was in economic crisis, was at its own April fair where it found the solution: business, glasses of manzanilla, songs, dances, happiness, etc. An attractive enough offer to attract people!

The most typical of the fair it is without a doubt the large number of stalls (more than 1,040) that can be found where food and drink (its famous rebujito and its famous manzanilla) meet the tastes of Sevillians and tourists who find themselves there. Eating and drinking are the two greatest pleasures of this typical fair.
