Join us for Spain’s most lively festival, Feria de Abril, in Singapore! Take a look at our programme below and get your seats booked for this unique experience!

what is feria de abril?

Light, colour, and a lot of joy. Every year, Sevilla is taken over by its ‘Feria de Abril’, the fair of all fairs, a microcosm where the idiosyncrasy of the city unfolds with all its charm and power of seduction. It dates back to 1846 when it was originally organized as a livestock fair by two councillors José María Ybarra and Narciso Bonaplata.

Seville’s Feria de Abril begins the night of the “alumbrao”, the inaugural moment when all the fairground lights are lit. This is also the night the traditional “pescaíto frito” (fried fish) is tasted in the stands. Manzanilla is the wine of the Feria: around 1.5 million bottles are consumed! After a week of constant celebration, the Fair concludes with a great fireworks display over the Guadalquivir River.

The Fair is like a small, ornate town: an ephemeral world where the houses are booths, lit with lanterns and all the streets are named for legendary bullfighters. Every year, a monumental colourful facade is erected at the entrance to commemorate a monument of the city of Seville. The facade is lit with thousands of light bulbs and is the traditional meeting place for Sevillians.

La Feria de Abril is accompanied by men and women dressed up in their finery, ideally the traditional “traje corto” (short jacket, tight trousers and boots) for men and the “faralaes” or “trajes de flamenca” (flamenco-style dress) for women.

flamenco live music

Prepare for the authentic flamenco music experience with our artists: Alberto Marin and Carlos Sendrós. Professional flamenco musicians with over 15 years of experience, already renowned among the South East Asia’s public, will definitely make this weekend extraordinary.
