Do you know that there are dozens and dozens of festivities throughout the Region of Valencia? Fallas, La Tomatina, Moors and Christians, Fogueres, La Magdalena ... Do they sound familiar? You have to know them!
In the Region of Valencia there is always a party: the smell of gunpowder in Fallas, coinciding with San José or Palm Sunday and Holy Week in the springtime. Les Fogueres de Sant Joan fill the month of June with fire and art while the International Habaneras and Polyphony Contest takes place in July. La Tomatina de Buñol, the last Wednesday of August, is another of the classics. In September we have the Entry of Bulls and Horses of Segorbe and the calendar does not end there. In fact, it is full of multitudinous parties that should be lived, at least once in a lifetime. In April, Alcoy relives the Reconquista with the Moors and Christians, Requena celebrates its Fair and Harvest Festival in September, there are also the Algemesí festivities; in August, Elche remembers the Mystery and Castellón celebrates Magdalena on the third Saturday of Lent. All without mentioning the festivities of each town, among other celebrations. Do you realise what you're missing?
Agosto is synonymous with fun in Elche. It is the festive month of the year par excellence in the capital of the Baix Vinalopò region. Three grand celebrations take place during this summer month: Moors and Christians, the Nit de l'Albá, and the Misteri. There is no place or time for boredom. It is the ideal destination to have a good time in the Region of Valencia in summer.
Como cada año, el primer domingo de las Fiestas de la Magdalena, Castellón celebra su tradicional “Romeria de les Canyes”. Acto que congrega a miles de castellonenses para subir a la ermita de la Magdalena y rememorar los orígenes de la ciudad.
At Christmas, the streets and houses are dressed in lights and flowers, and in the Region of Valéncia, we go beyond adding a Valencian flavour to our Christmas recipes and celebrating these festivities with unique events.
The Carnival of Villar del Arzobispo is undoubtedly one of the most famous carnivals in the Region of Valencia celebrated on February 28 and March 1 to 3.
