Ferias and Fiestas

Ferias are held throughout the year and Cómpeta’s Feria is in July. Be prepared to party until the early hours and to have a great time with fireworks, music, drinking, dancing and amusement park rides and games. The Plaza Almijara square comes alive with a foam party and the steep La Rampa has a water slide for the daring. Our favourite event is when all the Cómpeteno’s gather in traditional dress for the Romeria. Many ladies will match their daughters in the specially made Traje de Gitana or Traje Faralaes: a traditional flamenco dress. You will find men on horseback in the Traje de Corto: A traditional outfit: a short jacket, tight pants, and the Cordobés hat.

Another popular Cómpeta celebration is the Noche Del Vino or Night of the Wine which takes place on the 15th August.  This celebration takes place all across the village, where you will see the streets lined with medieval markets.  

Cómpeta has some of the area’s best local wine, at the end of the day there is a program of flamenco and Sevillano music and dance plus limitless free wine. You can also gather some of the free collectible posters, designed by a different artist each year – see how many you can spot in the Competa Escapes houses.
