San Pedro Alcántara Fair will take place from 16 – 21 October, 2018 and there will be a lot of great events.

Ringing bells and fireworks announce every year in mid-October the Festival and Fair in San Pedro Alcántara – the last event on the Costa del Sol’s calendar. It is a traditional fair, dating back to the late nineteenth century, when the village consolidated as a farming community. Locals still pay tribute to their patron saint, San Pedro Alcántara, whose feast is on 19 October. The festival is famous for its day fair and its deep Andalusian roots. As it takes place in October, it also avoids the summer heat.
