The fiesta has a marked Andalusian flavour. There are “casetas” (marquees with food, drink and music) erected at the city’s fair ground, most of which are open to the general public.
The thoroughfare and the surrounding streets fill with horse-drawn carriages, flamenco dress, “Sevillana” music and wine. The origins of the fair go back to the old livestock market – this market is now held on the outskirts of the city. During the period of the fair there are various bullfights that take place in the Los Califas Bullring.
The Cordoba Fair is usually held at the end of May, to mark the feast of Our Lady of la Salud (Health). The special fairground in el Arenal is very easy to get to and horse-riders and men or women in gypsy dress can be seen in the casetas (individual enclosures belonging to each association) which are laid out in orderly rows in the different streets of the fairground. All the casetas are public, and the doors are open for visitors to enter any they like, which is half the fun of it all.
The uplifting sound of Sevillanas, the fino wine, the tapas, the Cordoban hat and the peinetas (ornamental combs worn by the women) make the Cordoba Fair as amazing an experience as any of the other Andalusian fairs.
