May Horse Fair in Jerez de la Frontera

Jerez holds the Jerez May Horse Fair traditionally on the first week in May each year. This is a spectacular equestrian event with a horse show that takes place in the Gonzalez Hontoria Park. Some of the world's finest horses and riders compete in the endurance trials, coach driving, "pursuit and tumble" and dressage competitions, with a stunning display of the finest horses of the region.


Seville Spring Fair

This is the first of the season of Summer fairs and in Seville it takes place in the spring. It is also called the April fair although the date varies as it is traditionally held two clear weeks after the Easter week. This fair began in Seville in 1847 and this week long event is a perfect expression of the Andalucian personality. Read about the Seville Spring Fair.
