We can now confirm dates for the non-feria of Seville, during the period from April 21st to 25th, it will once again be adorned for the month of April. This time, the usual atmosphere of the Real will be seen in the streets of Seville. Specifically, in the Historic Quarter, through the installation of garlands, special lighting, or an umbrella like those at the Real’s crossings, we can feel a little closer to our beloved April Fair.
A GREAT SHOWCASE OF FLAMENCO FASHION
Seville will also become a great showcase of flamenco fashion. On April 17th and 18th, thanks to the Seville City Council, the grand fashion parade will take place.
Seville awaits you dressed in flamenco attire
The location is on Avenida de la Constitución, extending to the intersection with García de Vinuesa Street.
Renowned brands from the industry will participate to showcase their new collections within designated areas for attendees, who will need to have a prior invitation for access. The parade can also be followed through online streaming.
THE NO FERIA OF SEVILLE HAS “CACHARRITOS” (FUNFAIR ATTRACTIONS)
As it should be in any respectable fair, the CALLE DEL INFIERNO (Hell Street) could not be missing. Since Good Friday, the initiative ‘Vive park‘ has been open to the public.
THE FUNFAIR ATTRACTIONS OF CALLE DEL INFIERNO
As explained by EL DIARIO DE SEVILLA, Vive park offers over 100 attractions along its streets, allowing the people of Seville to enjoy this new amusement park for an entire month. Although the layout is quite similar to the classic fairground setup, the spacing between attractions has been increased to comply with current sanitary safety measures.
In an area of 80,000 square meters, up to 9,200 people can enjoy the attractions simultaneously. There are numerous controls at the entrance and exit to monitor the capacity.
The leisure center is open from Thursday to Sunday, from 12:00 to 22:30.
Photographic exhibitions in streets and squares
Avenida de la Constitución, Plaza del Salvador, Plaza del Altozano, and Plaza de la Encarnación will host two exhibitions that celebrate flamenco fashion through images displayed on mupis from April 7th to 25th.
The first one, called “Por los rincones del Alcázar” (In the corners of the Alcázar), promoted by Mof&Art, features Eva González wearing dresses from some of the city’s designers.
The second exhibition, “Los héroes de la pandemia” (The heroes of the pandemic), organized by Lunar Off, showcases the professionals who have stood out during the pandemic, also adorned in designs from Seville.
The exhibition of horse-drawn carriages
The Royal Andalusian Harness Club (RCEA) chose the Tablada Air Barracks as the starting point for the 35th Carriage Exhibition. In front of the Tiro del Pichón building, which bears the signature of Juan Talavera Sr., several promotional banners, three chairs, and a splendid horse-drawn carriage were placed.
Specifically, it is a coupe coach manufactured by Cesáre Sala around 1900. It is the carriage with the most first prizes in international tradition competitions and is owned by Gregorio Aranda, who lent it to the presentation event.
The April Fair begins with two flamenco fashion exhibitions featuring Eva González and the ‘heroes of the pandemic’ as protagonists.
We look forward
