Archidona dog show prepares to celebrate its 30th birthday
The town will celebrate three decades of one of its best-known events on 5, 6 and 7 May
Just like Crufts, only in Spain
If you are a doggie person (who isn’t unless you are a cat?) then the Archidona dog show is something you shouldn’t miss. It is all things canine.
Where is Archidona?
Archidona is a town and municipality in the province of Málaga. Part of the autonomous community of Andalusia in southern Spain. It is the centre of the comarca of Nororiental de Málaga and the head of the judicial district that bears its name. It earned the title of city in 1901. Wikipedia
From Nerja, just head north to Granada and you will soon find Archidona. It takes 1 hour and 10 minutes of very easy driving along the A-7 and A-45. Directions
Whilst in Archidona, use the same trip to visit nearby Antequera. I assure you, the place is an absolute wonder for history and culture buffs.
Archidona’s dog show
This is one of the town’s most important annual events will be celebrating its 30th birthday this year. The town is currently getting ready for this year’s Feria del Pueblo which will take place on 5, 6 and 7 May.
Isabel Alba, who runs the event, said that the bulk of the programme will be announced after Easter, although she confirmed that the town’s iconic Plaza Ochavada will host one of the event’s special moments, the well-known ‘Archi de Oro’.
