The Feria de Abril or Seville Fair attracts both foreigners and locals. It is a spring festival held annually in Seville, where the public gathers in a large enclosure called the Real de la Feria, with flamenco and Sevillian costumes, streets with ephemeral booths, decorated with lanterns, through which riders and horse-drawn carriages circulate and through which some 500,000 visitors pass every day.
The Feria de Abril was created as a livestock fair in 1846. It is held one or two weeks after Easter and coincides with the bullfights in the Plaza de la Maestranza. It has a great economic and social impact on the town and has been declared a Festival of International Tourist Interest.
