In few places in the world will you feel such unforgettable emotions as during Valencia’s festivals. Valencia is perhaps one of the only cities in the world where people work all year round preparing the impressive artisanal monuments, to be burnt on one night. That is the essence of Las Fallas, which take place during the month of March.
Shortly after come the Maritime Holy Week, where we can enjoy the Good Friday and the Holy Burial Parades: which take place close to Valencia’s port.
On the 23rd June, the city celebrates the night of Saint Juan. Known colloquially as the Night of Witches, this festival takes place during the summer solstice. People have dinner with friends on the beach; make bonfires and, according with tradition, jump over the fire and waves of the ocean to make their wishes come true.
During the month of July, there are many open-air concerts and shows. It is bull-fighting season and the colourful ‘Battle of Flowers’ takes place.
Although Moros y Cristianos festivals are found across the Valencian Community, some of the oldest and most spectacular celebrations are found in the towns around Valencia. Check our program of Extra-Curricular Activities…
