The first week of June signals the start of the International Festival Mijas, the annual celebration of the different nationalities living all over Mijas. A number of countries are represented with the party kicking off with a Latin party with live music and dance acts that will get people up and dancing throughout the evening.
One of the best reasons for visiting the International festival is the variety of food and cuisine on offer. Although the countries represented change each year, there is always something new to try. Several countries stage parades during the festival and workshops are run for kids and adults.
