MADRID, February 12, 2018 — Across Spain S.L. has introduced its latest festival program in Jerez and Sevilla, Andalusia.

The origins of this festival go back more than 500 years when people held livestock fairs in Jerez in April and September simply to trade animals. These events gained importance and visitors as winegrowers started selling their wine there and small amusement parks were set up. Jerez is also known for its Royal Andalusian School of Equestrian Art where spectators can admire the “dancing stallions” This very prestigious institution preserves the classical traditions of Spanish baroque horsemanship and conserves the ancestral abilities of the Andalusian horse breed.

The Horse Fair takes place every year and each festival has a different theme. However, at every festival visitors can try regional specialities like Sherry and enjoy the great Andalusian food. There is also always an amusement park with roller coasters, bumper cars and more. Even at night, the fair is unique with its beautiful, decorative lights which create a great atmosphere. The horses and carriage rides as attractions give this festival a very special flair as well.

With our package, you can not only enjoy this outstanding fair, but you also get to visit Sevilla, see a flamenco show and even watch a cowboy contest (Doma Vaquera).
