Murcia's September Fair

-Murcia-

Spanish name: Feria de Septiembre de Murcia

Murcia's September Fair. Our Lady of Fuensanta The September Fair of Murcia is held the first fortnight of the month, although the initial and final dates may change. In any case, the event starts with the arrival of Our Lady of Fuensanta to the city from the Fuensanta Sanctuary in September 8, day number 251 in the Gregorian calendar. The fair ends thirteen days later, a Tuesday marked as a holiday in the municipality of Murcia, when a big crowd marches in a pilgrimage in which Our Lady is returned to her Sanctuary.
 
This tradition is rooted in medieval fairs, in which goods were exchanged. The livestock fair and handcrafts stands are kept alive in the modern version of the fair, which was authorized by king Alfonso X "the Wise" in the 13th century and has currently established itself as the Patron Saint festivities of Murcia.
 
Some of the main events taking place in Murcia city and municipality during the thirteen days of this fair are as follows:
  • Bullfighting at the Condomina bullring 
  • Moors and Christians festivities all over the city
  • Our Lady of Fuensanta pilgrimage
  • Amusement park at the "Fica" venue 
  • The area of Malecón, orchards, wine and foodstuffs fair, handcrafts fair. “Moros y Cristianos” Medieval camp
  • Azacaya livestock fair, on the road to Beniaján
  • Festival Lemon Pop
  • Concerts and other performances
