The Cordova Spring Fair 2018
The Cordova Fair, in honor of the Virgin of Our Lady of Health, is celebrated the last week of May, culminating the month of celebration par excellence in the city. There are thousands of people who visit the Fair every year, from Cordoba to foreigners, who travel to the Recinto called El Real del Arenal to celebrate this festival.
Dates of the Fair
This year 2018, the Fair is celebrated from the 19th to the 26th of May. There are 8 days of partying in the Arenal where you can enjoy in more than 100 booths, all with free access, music, horse riding and attractions for children and young people.
Specifically, the official opening is on Saturday 19 at 0: 00h. when the lighting is turned on and the fireworks are given way. The opening hours of the booths is from 1:00 p.m. at 1:00 h. although many of them will be open until 5:00 p.m.
This year, the Arenal Campus has more than 100 booths, which, as we have said before, are all open access. The decoration of these houses is very traditional, with decorations that resemble the typical houses of neighbors of the city. The main ornaments are pots, fences and the typical color, without missing the traditional lanterns.
Another aspect to highlight the fair booths is that many of them have air conditioning, so the heat of these dates is much more bearable. As every year, the contest of booths is held and the best decorated will receive a prize.
The horse ride is another attraction of the Cordova Fair. There are many riders and coachmen that can be seen in the Arenal. They offer a very colorful image, along with the amount of visitors that come to the fair with the typical costumes.
The attractions of the Fair are located in the Hell Street, inside the Arenal Campus. At the entrance of the enclosure is the Ferris Wheel, followed by the other attractions for young people, the tombolas and fast food establishments. In the streets of the Peineta and the Volante are the attractions for the little ones. Wednesday is the day of the child and the price of the attractions is reduced by 50%.
Concerts and shows
This year, the main concerts in the Caseta Municipal will be those of Los Aslándticos, David de María, Miguel Sáez & Mario Méndez, Los Chunguitos, The Prodigious Decade, Carolina Caparrós & Álvaro Rey and Manu Tenorio. Diego El Cigala will be in concert at the Teatro de la Axerquía.
