The Seville April Fair 2023 will officially take place from 00:00 hours on Sunday 23 April, when the façade of the fairgrounds will be lit up in an event known as "alumbrado". And. the fair will conclude on Saturday 29 April at 24:00 hours with a fireworks display. It is important to note that the date of the Feria de Abril varies each year, as it is held two weeks after Easter.
The Seville April Fair is a festival that never fails to offer unforgettable moments from the first day to the last. Although it is true that the day of the "pescaíto", the first day and Wednesday are usually the liveliest, each day at the Real de la Feria is unique and special.
The public "casetas" are open from 12 noon to 3 am, while the private ones can close at any time they choose. If you plan to come during the day, we recommend arriving at around 13:30 hours, and if you prefer the afternoon-evening, the ideal time is from 19:00 hours.
It is important to bear in mind that between 12:00 and 20:00 there is the heaviest traffic of horses on the grounds, so it is necessary to take extreme precautions. But, in any case, the Seville Fair is always alive and ready to offer you unique moments. Don't miss it!
Do you know where the Feria de Abril is held in Seville? In a unique and charming place! The grounds are specially dedicated to this event, located between Los Remedios and Tablada, and are divided into three areas: the Real de la Feria, the Calle del Infierno and the car parks. Get ready to enjoy an unforgettable experience in a place full of tradition and joy!
The best option for getting around the city during the Feria de Abril is the metro, both for locals and tourists. During these dates, the number of trains in circulation is increased and they will run non-stop to avoid waits and crowds in the carriages.
And the best thing is that there are three metro stops near the fairgrounds: Blas Infante (near Calle del Infierno), Parque de los Príncipes and Plaza de Cuba (a few minutes from the main entrance). With this option, you'll get there quickly and without complications.
But if you prefer another alternative, don't worry. You can also opt for the bus. The Feria Special starts at Prado San Sebastián and will take you close to the Real. However, bear in mind that traffic can be a little heavy at this time of year.
This inaugural dinner of the Feria is exclusively for the members of the casetas, but there are also groups of friends and family members who celebrate it around the fairgrounds. It is a special night of sharing food, dancing and laughter, and waiting for the lighting of the lights to start the Fair. It is important to note that the women do not usually wear the traditional costume and the men usually wear suits.
Although the illumination can be seen every night, we recommend you to experience the Alumbrado, the event that starts the Fair. From the Portada to the end of the fairgrounds, the 15 streets are illuminated with 200,000 light bulbs, creating a magical atmosphere.
If you come with children, you can't miss the street of hell, where you will find all the attractions for the little ones and not so little ones. Despite its name, Hell Street is a fun and lively place. However, it is important to bring cash, as not all attractions accept credit cards.
