Ferias and Flamenco Dresses in Spanish Culture

Ferias and Flamenco Dresses in Spanish Culture

In most of the towns all throughout Spain there is a fair, or feria in Spanish,  that lasts anywhere from 2 to 7 days. There are small little attractions, rides, and the link of games that we associate with fairs. But, here in Spain, there are also tents set up with music and everyone dances flamenco!

People go to the fairs dressed in their everyday clothes, but some wear flamenco dresses that cost anywhere from $100 to $1000! People that live in big cities like Seville or Cordoba have a different dress for every day.

The feria I went to was the feria of Rota. All of the dresses were so pretty and unique! There also were horses pulling carts full of people dressed to a T! The party never stopped there and usually, the people don’t leave the fair until about 7 or 8 in the morning! I learned how to dance flamenco a little bit, and I am very bad. My sisters took lessons when they were younger so they are going to teach me so that I’m ready for the feria of Cordoba in three weeks, which is even bigger than Rota. Hopefully, I won’t embarrass myself too bad! imageimageimageimage
