This event was first held in 2009, with the aim of making art more accessible and encouraging contact between the public and the artists themselves.
For a few days, the centre of the city of Marbella is filled with stalls where artists can exhibit their work and interact with their public. The event is accompanied by performances of jazz, blues, opera and dance which continue until 11 every evening. A total of 100 artists are expected to take part, and the event will be visited by about 20,000 people.
The Festival International de Arte Marbella was founded in 2009 by a dedicated group of Spanish and international residents, with the support of Marbella Town Hall. The event has now grown into one of the most important street art festivals in southern Spain and a major visitor attraction. For three days of artistic celebration each June, we bring together the many different nationalities who live in and visit Marbella, uniting us all through the passion of creativity and art.
