The Big Week of the municipality, which is celebrated from June 7 to 12

The San Bernabé Fair is one of the most relevant festivities, with the greatest “packaging”, and tradition of Marbella and is celebrated every year during the month of June. San Bernabé is one of the most anticipated and colorful events on the Costa del Sol. This festival, together with Carmen in July, is one of the most anticipated and deeply rooted festivities for the citizens of Marbella. The Marbella fair is one of the festivals with the greatest Andalusian flavour, where flamenco dresses are a very important part of the celebration. Both locals and foreigners mix to enjoy the dance, the music, the good wine and the rich gastronomy, throughout a whole week. Experiencing the San Bernabé festivities in Marbella first-hand is the ideal opportunity to enjoy the “most traditional” facet of the town, the most ideal way to get an idea of the Marbella of yesteryear, before the tourist boom.


The Marbella Fair takes place this 2022 between June 7 and 12, but it is on June 5, when the traditional Pilgrimage of San Bernabé is celebrated, a party that usually begins first thing in the morning, with the launch of rockets announcing the departure from the Casa Hermandad of the patron saint, after which a free tasting of churros with chocolate is usually offered to all attendees.

The Marbella Fair is a traditional celebration that includes important concerts and good gastronomy as its main course. The Day Fair is spectacular with its folklore, typical costumes and rich delicacies accompanied by good wine. You can not miss.

The feasts take place during the day in the center of Marbella, continuing at night in the Fairgrounds, until the wee hours of the morning. Fun and joy cannot be missed at one of the most traditional festivals on the Costa del Sol.

The “big week of the fair” officially begins with the opening and lighting of the Fairgrounds. Next comes the coronation of the Child and Youth Queens and Ladies. At night on the fairground. At 10:00 p.m. the opening concerts of the Feria will take place in Francisco Cuevas Blanco Park with “Los del Río” in charge of reading the proclamation of the San Bernabé Fair and the 2022 celebrations.

The next day one of the most anticipated moments occurs: around 1:00 p.m. the “Day Fair” will be inaugurated on the Paseo de la Alameda.
