You really should not miss the Feria Real de San Roque, which is dear to the heart of all that live in the Campo de Gibraltar, it is a fiesta that had been celebrated by Gibraltarians since time immemorial, a tradition which was later continued by the San Roque inhabitants. It was not until 1952 when the Spanish Crown finally granted it the title of Feria Real.

If you want to see a real traditional Andalucia feria, you just cannot miss San Roque's and all its folklore. Horses, gipsy riders, music, food, wine, meeting friends, casetas, joy rides, it is all there and, on the Monday after the feria, if you are still under the influence and want some real excitement, you can try and chase the bull that is turned out loose in the streets.
The biggest fair of all is the Málaga Feria which starts on the 14th August until the 22nd, the following week. The fiesta owes its origin to the celebration of Málaga join the Spanish Kingdom after its liberation from the Moors by the Catholic Kings. 
It is a big, big fair and it is of tourist interest.
