THIS year’s San Bernabe festival in Marbella will see a healthy and helpful injection of generous funding from the Marbella Town Hall which will contribute more than €120,000 to ensure that musical performances enrapture the audience and showcase the event’s growing reputation.
Taking place from June 6 to June 12, the feria ushers in a wonderful period for the city and is the first of a terrific series of events set to make summer magical for families, residents and foreigners alike.
The money will chiefly be used to help fund the enviable range of local artists who will be showing off their talent throughout the week, including Loquilo, Gisela and youth group Sweet California. Other costs will include security and organisation as the event planners want to ensure everything goes off without a hitch and is memorable for all the attendees.
Taking place across local fairgrounds and drawing crowds from right across the Costa del Sol, the San Bernabe Festival celebrates the capture of Marbella by the catholic Kings more than 500 years ago in 1485.
Traditional Andalucian culture, as well as Marbella’s own melting pot charm are part of parcel of the fun, which will feature music, dance, food, and a huge variety of other performances well worth a visit.
