Fair of Mijas Pueblo during the first half of September

Cartel Feria Mijas Pueblo 2019 The popular Mijas Fair takes place during the first half of September. In this charming village located about 400 metres above sea level there is a wide cultural programme. There will be activities for all tastes and ages during these holidays.

In 2019 the Fair will be celebrated from 6th to 11th in September.

On the first day of the fair, the traditional cavalcade with big heads will parade through the main streets of the town. The day fair is taking place next to the wall where there will be popular activities and games for children as well as musical performances and fireworks.
