Casetas at Seville Feria
The Feria has over 1,000 casetas (literally small houses), green or red-and-white striped tents of varying sizes arranged along 15 streets. Each caseta has its own name on the front, and belongs to a local family, group of friends, business, club, trade association or political party.
The casetas are decorated like small houses, all different, with painted wooden tables and chairs, curtains, pictures on the wall, a bar serving food and drink, and toilets.There's a front part, with tables for eating, and dancing, while in the back part you can find the bar and toilets.
It is important to be aware that the Seville Feria is the most closed and exclusive of all Andalucian fairs: the majority of the casetas are private and open only to members and their guests.
Every day during Feria week, from midday until the small hours, members of the caseta meet there to eat, drink, dance and socialise from lunchtime until the small hours. Being able to welcome guests in your own caseta proves a certain status in Seville society. This is an essential event as a host, both in social and business terms - you can impress your friends, woo your intended, and strike a deal with a potential client or partner. Sevillanos are extremely generous, so if you're lucky enough to have an invitation to a private caseta, as a visitor you will probably be plied with drink and food.
Casetas open to the public
If not, you have other options: there are a number of public casetas - Fiesta Mayores, and one for each of six distritos municipales (municipal districts) of Seville. You can also enter the political parties' ones (PSOE, PP, Partido Andalucista); the trades unions' (CCOO, UGT, USO); one called La Marimorena, which serves vegan food; and the new tourist one.
Pick up a map marking all the casetas, including the public ones, from one of the two tourist information kiosks. These are located just inside the feria ground: one by the portada, and one at the other end, by Calle del Infierno.
