After a period of unsettled weather, it looks like the sun is now here to stay and summer is definitely on its way. Summer in Marbella means hot sunny days, warm evenings, buzzing restaurants and bars and loads of great events – it’s a brilliant time to come!

One of the highlights of the calendar is the feria, a week of partying which brings the whole town onto the street and is the best party of the year. It is from the 6th to the 12th of June and has two parts – the day fair and the night fair.

Easter is a great time of year to visit Marbella. This is the time when the high season officially begins, everything reopens, the beaches are ready for the summer and the atmosphere is excellent as tourism returns again in earnest.

This is also an important religious holiday, and is marked by a whole week of daily processions through Marbella. You don’t have to be catholic to go along and take a look, it’s a fascinating insight into the Spanish culture and is very dramatic. The processions all start from different churches and chapels around the pretty old town and centre around floats with statues depicting different events from the Easter story. These floats are enormous, ornate and take 12 or more men to carry them through the streets, navigating the small squares and balconies on their way through. They then head down to the main street, Ricardo Soriano, along this high street before going back into the old town again. If you’re not sure where they are just follow your nose – they are always accompanied by a lot of incense!

From the 22nd of July to the 21st of August the Marbella Book Festival is taking place on the Costa del Sol. The activities are taking place in the Alameda park and in the Hospital Real de la Misericordia in Marbella Old Town, where the book signings, exhibitions and performances are taking place.

The preacher this year is the well-known author Juan Malpartida and there are over 40 activities scheduled over the month. There is also a focus on Don Quijote with stories known as “quijotescos” and a round table discussion all about the famous book. As the legendary Spanish author rightly said “He who reads a lot and walks a lot, sees a lot and knows a lot” and this is why the organisers of this event are trying to bring the culture of reading and literature to as many people as possible. According to Gema Midón “We want a Book Fair which is more appealing and much more interactive, which will be a culture focal point for Marbella, not just for older people and keen readers, but also for the smallest members of the area.”

Summer in Marbella really is a special time and there’s so much going on under our famously sunny skies. So you don’t miss a thing, here’s a rundown of the best events happening this month from your friendly Marbella dentist. If we’ve missed something great that you want to share, please comment on the post so that everyone can see!

Thursdays in the Old Town – Marbella Old Town is a lovely place to visit at any time, but during July they have special discounts in the shops, live music and free tastings every Thursday, so it’s a great time to have a wander around this stunning, historic part of Marbella.

Banus Artisan Market – There’s a great summer market right in the centre of Puerto Banus which runs all this month and until the 31st of August. It’s open every day from 11am to late and is a great place to browse and pick up some gifts. http://marbellaazul.com/event/artisan-international-summer-market-puerto-banus/


MarbellaFeria2016.jpg

Our dental clinic is located close to the centre of Marbella, right by the iconic “pirulí” or copper tower and near El Corte Ingles, Starbucks and the hotel Gran Melia Don Pepe. This amazing location gives us a great opportunity to experience all the hustle and bustle of Marbella and tell you about the events and activities happening in this amazing town.

Today the Marbella Feria in honour of the town’s patron saint San Bernabe begins. We’re really happy that the feria has come back to the town, after several years away from the centre.
