Celebrated two weeks after Easter, Seville’s Feria de Abril is one of Spain’s largest fiestas that includes flamenco dancing, bullfighting and sherry tastings. What began as a cattle trading fair in the 1840s is now a two-week event drawing thousands of annual visitors to its brightly colored tents set up outside the city’s center. On Saturday, Carmens de la Calle is hosting La Feria Pequeña at Travis Park in honor of San Antonio’s Tricentennial and Spain’s rich influence on our city.

Inspired by Seville’s Feria de Abril, Carmens’ Feria Pequeña will feature flamenco performances, traditional Spanish food and photo opportunities with flamenco performers in horse carriages. Although it may not be on the same scale as Seville’s world-famous celebration, La Feria Pequeña is certainly one to look forward to and one which highlights our very own flamenco talent. The outdoor festival marks the perfect kick-off for Fiesta and provides a welcome change of scenery to Carmens’ weekly world music offerings.



Free, Sat April 14, 6-10:30pm, Travis Park, 301 E. Travis St., (210) 281-4349, carmensdelacalle.com.
