The Horse Fair

From 4th to 11th May 2024


The Horse Fair has been declared an event of International Tourist Interest and takes place in the Gónzalez Hontoria Park, just a few steps from the historic centre and the most outstanding attractions of the city.

The city takes on a very special air for a week each year, coming alive with bustle and activity as the Horse Fair offers the chance to enjoy sherry, flamenco, horses and a unique ambience that inundates the whole city.

Jerez is seen at its best as it displays all of its main cultural exponents: flamenco, horses and sherry.

The origins of the fair date back to a livestock market that developed over the years until it became a fair, with the Pure Bred Spanish Cartujano horse as its protagonist.

Amongst its many attractions the Horse Fair includes an exceptional horse parade, traditional carriage driving competition, Morphological Competition, classical and vaquera dressage competitions, acoso y derribo, the Golden Horse Trophy and select livestock exhibitions.
