Great Valencia Fear

Great Valencia Fair

In July Valencia gets ready to hold its traditional Great Valencia Fair. The city organises a month of activities, filling the streets with colour, outdoor concerts and firework displays on the seafront. There is also time for culture, with a night when the museums are open until dawn and a spectacular Battle of Flowers as a grand finale. During the festival, Valencia vibrates to the sound of jazz, pop, and rock, and smells of gunpowder, roses and daisies. 

The festival was held for the first time on 21 July 1871, with a fabulous parade, pavilions, exhibitions of plants and many products for sale. Over the years, the Festival gradually came to coincide with the harvest. Exhibitions of produce and livestock were held in a festive ambience, with dancing and evening entertainment in the pavilions set up for the Festival.
