BULLFIGHTING: FERIA DE SAN ISIDRO":

From May 6 to June 12, the San Isidro and Aniversario bullfighting events will be held in Madrid

May is Madrid's month for bulls. The Feria San Isidro, the most important bullfighting event in the world, will take place at Plaza de Toros de las Ventas in May, and then the Feria del Aniversario takes over the celebrations.

Since Livinio Stuyck included all of the May events in the Madrid patron saint festivities in 1947, Madrid has become one of the most significant bullfighting benchmark events in the world. In the beginning, the event had five bullfights and one of the main innovations was the inclusion of a season ticket so audiences could attend all the festivities. The event has only continued to grow and the once modest festivities have expanded to 25 afternoons.
