In Spain organized into Autonomous Communities, Andalusia celebrates, on the last day of February, the anniversary of its own Constitution. It’s the occasion of great celebrations in the 8 provinces of Andalusia. The Andalusian Alhambra Association, recognized by the Andalusian Autonomous Government as “Andalusian Community located beyond borders” joins this celebration and invites the public each year in March to participate in the numerous events and shows that it organizes, in collaboration with the “La Fenêtre” Social Center.

The Andalusian Festival was created in 2002 at the Maison Pour Tous “Le Château” in Saint Chamand (Avignon-France). Originally taking place over three days, it extended over 11 days in 2018 and covered several municipalities in the Vaucluse department : Avignon, Morières, Le Thor and Orange. The Andalusian Festival gained momentum for the 18th edition in March 2019 and took place in 6 municipalities in the Vaucluse
