By Nicole Tyler

Spring is a time full of color and festivities, especially if you are in Seville, Spain. People from all over gather for the Seville Spring Fair. Have you ever heard of this event? You probably haven’t. Most people have simply heard of the running of the bulls in Pamplona, but the festival in Seville is just as beloved by locals as anything else around. Let’s take a minute to familiarize ourselves with it. After learning about this, you may even want to check it out yourself at some point.

The Spring Fair usually takes place two weeks after the Holy Week celebration is done and is known to last up to a week. Few people know about this event as compared to others, but it’s still one of the most special that the great nation of Spain has to offer.

The Seville Spring Fair has a lot to offer for both visitors and locals. Among these events are the marching of carriages, and perhaps the most exciting even of the the fair is when everyone gathers in the arena every day to watch the bullfighters.

There are also many festively decorated tents or casetas as called by the locals, lining the river bank. Often times as you pass them you will seen of the popular locals having drinks together.

The people there will be out celebrating for the whole week and dance all day. This is a truly festive event that brings out the best in everyone and every Spaniard who attends it takes full advantage of the offerings and the special nature of this event in general.

It is tradition for everyone to bring and share finger foods and other snacks, the locals call them tapas and you’ve probably had them at a restaurant considering their growth in popularity through the rest of the world.

The Seville fair originated in 1847 when the locals would bring in their livestock for the queen to approve. 160 years later, Seville still holds tight to and treasures this event just as much as they did when it began.

One of the greatest and arguably the most beautiful of all of Seville’s traditions for this grand festival is the woman dancing in their vibrant dresses. Surely, it shows the elegance and beauty of the city of Seville Spain.

Aside from Seville, this author also regularly shares writing on engraved silver cufflinks and paper boxes.
