September Feasts Murcia
September Feasts Murcia starts with the Pilgrimage to Murcia and official reception to Our Lady of the Fuensanta: 31 of august/Romería hacia Murcia y recepción oficial a Ntra. Sra. de la Fuensanta: 31 de Agosto.
The September Fair of Murcia is a festival of market popular character that sinks its roots in medieval fairs.
Already lost the need and the tradition of the fairs to exchange products and merchandise, there are still traces of what would be its origin, cattle fair and craft stalls. At the September Fair in Murcia, various festivities coincide:
- Moors and Christians,
- the International Festival of Folklore in the Mediterranean,
- “Lemon Pop”,
- “huertos” in the pleasant garden of the Malecón,
- handicrafts fair and typical products
Is a great showcase of the region’s gastronomy and wine, not to mention, of course, the fair with its attractions that delight the children and teenagers and the bullfighting fair during this month.
These festivities begin with the descent of the Virgin of Fuensanta from its sanctuary to the Cathedral in Murcia and these parties are closed with the pilgrimage of La Fuensanta back to the sanctuary.
The most traditional fiesta in Murcia is the September Fair, because its celebration goes back to the privilege of Alfonso X in 1266.
In its origin the fair was strictly commercial, but little by little it was incorporating fun and festive activities. And in the last years, the party has surpassed the fair: is the moment in which the September Fair in Murcia lasts through its taurine celebrations, attractions, concerts, the Huertos del Malecón – with their tents for the tasting of the typical products of the orchard and the Wine and Food Show , feast of Moors and Christians, etc.
Date: 31/08/2017 – Where: Sanctuario del Monte at 15:30 – End at Cathedral of Murcia 31/08/2017 at 20:30
Huertos del Malecón: Gastronomía y música – 31/08/2017 to 11/09/2017
The Malecón Gardens host a total of 15 “Huertos” run by as many peñas huertanas that, once again, offer the typical gastronomy of Murcia in an atmosphere of reunion after the holiday period. In this environment so characteristic of the Fair of Murcia we can also talk about outdoor concerts, with free access (below are related day, time and artist). The Huerto del Malecón is a must to visit if you want to feel the essence of the September Fair.
Moros y Cristianos
The festival of Moors and Christians of the city of Murcia was born as such in 1983, but its gestation occurred in 1981 on the occasion of the commemorative events of the Foundation of Murcia, an event happened on April 21, 831 and was Celebrated thanks to the efforts of the Murcia section of the Association of Friends of the Castles in collaboration with the Defense of the Heritage of the Region of Murcia. They managed to interest various government agencies to get a dignified holiday – the city’s birthday – which was certainly achieved.
