As I visit the little towns in the province of Málaga, I will add my adventures to the list. Videos, pictures, timetable of events etc., as well as my personal opinion to whether or not it is worth returning to next year! If you have pictures of an account of your day at any particular festival, you can add it to!

Here is a list of the up and coming local fairs, festivals, and religious ceremonies. A lot of them offer free 'paella' (spanish rice dish with shellfish or/and pork) of food tasting as well as beer, cocacola or Sangria to wash it all down with! You can also click on a month to find out what you can do at any specific time. Festivals Malaga.
