Guadix Fair and Celebrations (The first week of September)

Guadix Fair and Celebrations

Every September, Guadix dresses up to carry out its summer celebrations, bringing summer time to an end and beginning a new period. These are some of the offers of this summer celebrations: fairground rides, concerts, stage plays, children’s activities, stands, bars, tapas, churros with chocolate and well-elaborated and prestigious pyromusic shows in the pyrotechnic workshop of the Caves of Guadix.

This celebration takes place by the end of August and early September, although it was celebrated originally at the end of September. It was like a cattle fair and coincided with San Miguel celebration, closing the fruits and vegetables season of the Guadix meadow.

Of special interest is the “Noon Fair”, which joins the traditional “Night Fair”. The stands placed in the exhibition site offers some samples of the traditional Guadix dishes, music and water steam baths to cool party people off. Young and old people, families, friends and visitors enjoy from the noon to the dawn in a festive atmosphere which is present in each corner of Guadix.
