Eating and drinking is one of the main pleasures enjoyed by all visitors to the Fair. All houses and lots of stalls, offering a wide range of dishes that allow the public to satisfy their hunger or thirst at any time of day.
The beginning of the April Fair dates back to 1846, whose birth was decreed by Queen Elizabeth. At first, like most fairs, the fair begins as a cattle market that lasted about three days. Though it began as a commercial event, over the years, the city of has transformed the event as an expression of song and dance in Seville, fun, joy, color, our spring party for six days of the April Fair in Seville.
