Open-air Festival. Arriate. October. Unique Festival
This festival has been declared to be of Tourist Interest by the Provincial Council of Málaga.
Please check with the local Town Hall or Municipal Tourism Office for the festival date before planning any sightseeing activities.
This event has been retrieved from Arriate's memory, and its celebration coincides with the Pilar holiday. Long ago, the festival was held annually with charitable purposes and featuring a wide range of performances carried out by residents. The amount collected would be allocated to help needy families.
However, since 2006, this cultural and music festival has focused on promoting local and provincial artists by encouraging participation and social relations through all forms of artistic expression.
There is also a craft market where visitors can witness live performances of artworks including sculpture, painting, wood carving, leatherwork, gastronomy and more, or attend jazz, sculpture, painting and photography workshops.
