Just two weeks after Seville’s other most important event of the year, the Holy Week celebrations, the city gets ready to celebrate again, this time for the Feria de Abril (April Fair). This weeklong celebration is full of eating, drinking, dancing, and dressing the part. Groups of families and friends gather in their casetas (private tents) and enjoy long drawn out lunches, following by even longer nights. And while many cities and towns in Spain have a feria, there is none quite as splendorous as in Seville.

Join Seville local Maria as she divulges the history and traditions behind Seville’s most colorful celebration, the Feria de Abril, or April Fair. You’ll discover the importance of this event for locals like Maria, the stories of the events past and what goes on behind closed doors at the private casetas, and you’ll even get a crash course in how to dress for the occasion. Then, you’ll learn to cook a typical feria dish, our favorite fried fish, or pescaíto frito.
