Las Fallas

Although it had been hoped that the stalled 2020 Fallas festival would be able to continue in July, the local government and Central Fallas Committee have confirmed that is has been cancelled for 2020. The sculptures that were made for this year - some of which were already being put in place around the city - will be kept in storage and brought out again for Fallas 2021 instead.

Fallas in Valencia

In March every year the city of Valencia is taken over with Las Fallas. Parties begin and massive colourful “monuments” appear in the streets, only to be burnt to the ground a few days later in an emotional night of fireworks and flames.

The main events and best time to see the monuments is 15-19 March, but you can also enjoy mascletà firecracker shows and other activities around the city starting from 1 March.

TIP! Enjoy a VIP view of some of the best Fallas events with our Banging Fallas Balcony Experience!

The city streets are dressed with decorative lights, the smell of gunpowder fills the air, people dance to traditional Valencian music, and thousands of flowers fill the Plaza del la Virgen in the city centre.

Fallas Valencia

The city is only transformed once a year and for just a few days, so if you’re lucky enough to be in Valencia for Las Fallas make the most of this unique experience and enjoy the culture, tradition and parties!

Gunpowder

Valencia Fallas and mascletà

Gunpowder is fundamental to Fallas parties. Valencians love the smell of gunpowder in all its forms: firework displays, mascletà (massive firecracker concerts) and smaller bangers being thrown around in streets.
