Las Fallas

Fallas were cancelled in 2020 due to the pandemic. The sculptures that had already been made - some of which were already being put in place around the city - are being kept in storage and will be brought out for Fallas 2021 instead.

At present, the 2021 Fallas have not been officially cancelled for March. While it seems impossible that they will go ahead as usual, there is still a chance that some events that don't involve crowds will be held in March and other Fallas events would be rescheduled for later in the year, possibly June or July.

It is all very fluid and there is a lot of political debate about it at the moment, so please subscribe for our email newsletters to receive the later updates as soon as they're available.

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.
