The countdown to the 2023 Pilar Fair begins

Zaragoza: The last of first category

When the season’s train arrives at the Delicias station, the bullfighters can already see the finish line. Zaragoza, however, is not just any stop. It’s the last mountain pass of the season, the fair that puts an end to the circuit of first class bullrings, the place where the bullfighting stars face to a rigorous public.

This year’s edition of the El Pilar Fair will have six bullfights, two novilladas, as well as a Rejones show. A varied program, with something for all kinds of tastes and spectators. The most bullfighting fans, and even the most geeky, have reasons to come to La Misericordia:

A bullfight competition with different herds (among them the “alipios” of Ignacio Pérez Tabernero, the bulls of Aurelio Hernando or the “camenos” of Castillejo de Huebra), a Santa Coloma novillada show owned by the Quintas brothers, which is announced as La Machamona, and the bulls of Palha, which promises strong emotions on the Patron Saint’s Day.

There will also be local representation with bullfighters Ignacio Boné, Paulita, Serranito and Carlos Gallego, the fans that fills the bullrings, takes place in the second part of the fair. Morante de la Puebla, the most genuine artist of the 21st Century, and Sebastián Castella, triumphant of the last San Isidro Fair, will perform twice in a cycle that also features Talavante, Luque, Ureña or Emilio de Justo and Ginés Marín, and Pablo Aguado or Tomás Rufo will also be among the bullfighters of the new generation.

Ventura, the greatest star of bullfighting on horseback, will perform on Sunday 15 together with Sergio Galán and Léa Vicens. There are a lot of arguments to get a ticket for the last of the first category bullrings. Don’t miss the train.
