We’ll be adding information to this page, as and when we have confirmation of all the events and general ‘goings-on’ on Mijas Costa and surrounding area, but for right now, we’ve listed any interesting events and happenings, both here in El Oceano and further afield! La Cala de Mijas is just 5 minutes drive, or 15 minutes walk along the beautiful Mijas Boardwalk, where many events are held throughout the year.
April see two significant events… Easter, of course and, perhaps the highlight of the year, El Oceano re-opens from its winter hibernation for another sensational season!!
It’s a very busy month in the restaurant with many returning – and incredibly popular – acts like The Dolly Parton & Frankie Valli Show and the fantastic Jersey Boys show, plus special events The Grand National, the first Full Moon Gala Dinner of the 2019 Season and the always super-busy Easter Bank Holiday!
Outside the hotel, the two main events of April are “La Feria de los Pueblos” (The International Fair) in Fuengirola and, or course, the the processions of Holy Week. the International Fair is held every year in Los Boliches in Fuengirola. It’s always a great day, or night, out! Lots and lots of food from many counties is sold, plus live music all day and night! This ‘feria’ (fair) is less about fairground rides and more about good food and good music. We think, it’s possibly the best of the annual ‘ferias’.
The 1st of May sees “Sardines in La Cala”! If you’ve visited the Costa del Sol in recent years, you will have seen the ‘espetos’ (open roasted sardines) in the ‘chiringuitos’ (beach bars) along the coast! You may not think too much about sardines, but this is more about the occasion than the fish! It’s a great day in La Cala, with many of the local tapas bars, chiringuitos and restaurants out on the street offering free espetos to anyone and everyone!
During the second half of May, Mijas Pueblo hosts the International People’s Day event! A multicultural celebration of the many nationalities living in Mijas, it is held in the old town of Mijas Pueblo and dozens of countries show the best of their culture, crafts and gastronomy and there is live music and dancing. A great day out 0 and Mijas Pueblo is really nice too!
Here at El Ocenao, May highlights include Someone Like Adele on Monday the 6th, Masquerade Duo on Monday the 13th, May’s Full Moon Gala Dinner on the 18th and the fantastic Rat Pack Live Show on Monday the 20th!
June sees the start of the high season and the temperatures start to sky-rocket!! June 23rd is the summer solstice and La Cala de Mijas hosts the midsummer celebrations on the beach! A real family feel to this event, many will spend all night on the beach, eating, drinking, having fun! It’s always a really nice atmosphere and lots of eating and drinking to be done!
Normally, Mijas Pueblo also hosts the Blues Festival, but as of writing this article, we can’t find any confirmation of this years’ event.
Here in the restaurant, entertainment highlights include June’s Full Moon Gala Dinner with Masquerade Duo on Monday the 17th, The Rat Pack Live on Monday the 10th and Monday the 24th!
Perhaps out busiest month, July is all about sizzling temperatures and ice-cold cocktails!!
The restaurant is ‘rocking’ all though July, with Johnny Baker, La Negra Mayte, plus Someone Like Adele on the 1st and 29th, The Rat Pack on the 8th and 22nd, Masquerade Duo on the 15th and July’s Full Moon with Quike on electric violin on the 16th!
Beyond the hotel, the end of July (usually starting around the 22nd/25th) sees the La Cala de Mijas Feria!! We like this one! It’s all fun at the fair, with candy floss and crazy rides!
