Between a great attendance, a record of participants and some troubles with taxi drivers, the 39th edition of the International Tourism Fair (Fitur) was held last weekend in Madrid. As we already announced, the Costa Blanca strives during this event to show the attractions of the area. Its gastronomy, beaches, culture and sports were some of the assets that the delegations of the Marina Alta were betting on this year. Among them, Benidorm has stood out as the “city of festivals”, since from March to November will host three important events and nine musical festivals.
The good weather of the Costa Blanca will be used to extend the outdoor leisure season, celebrating activities for all tastes. Some of these events already have a long tradition in the city and accumulate several editions. Companies and local establishments make their facilities available to event promoters so they can expand the leisure areas. Through this bet it is sought that people who travel to Benidorm for culture stay for several days to get to know the city and its tourist offer.
In this way, from July 8 to 14, the Benidorm Salsa Congress will be held, while the Benidorm Pride, the benchmark event geared specially towards the LGBTI+ public, will take place from September 2 to 8. On the other hand, the Benidorm Fancy Dress Party will close the season of events on November 16. This is a costume celebration of British origin whose popularity has been increasing for the last nine years. But what about concerts? We leave you the eclectic calendar of musical festivals of Benidorm below.
