What Is It?

Setting fire to things and dancing in the street.

And that's it! What more could you want, really?

Spain is famous for its street festivals and this is the only one this time of year. Las Fallas is a festival to celebrate the coming of spring. It is a festival to wish a jubilant bon voyage to winter - and how better to farewell those cold days and even colder nights than by building giant effigies and burning them to the ground, setting off fireworks (like everyone doing them everywhere) and, of course, drinking sangria and dancing in the streets.  

Jump on a bus and come with us!

We've got a trip running down to Valencia from Barcelona on Wednesday afternoon, for the burning itself. Includes private coach transport there and back, plenty of time in the festival before and after the burning of the effigies with Stoke guides and then a bus ride back to Barcelona, so you can make work/class the next day. Plus a litre of sangria.
Awesome!

FAQ

Enter your questions in the comments box below and we'll answer them here, because we love you.

 

Is there a chance I will burn too?

If you run into open flames then yes.

 

How long does the festival go for?

Valencia hosts five days and nights of festivities for Las Fallas. However, us Stokies go for the real deal; La Crema, the actual burning on the last night. We will watch in owe as the effigies go up in smoke, we will drink sangria and we will dance in the street. The bus trip takes around 5 hours per way, for departing and arriving times refer to the 'Itinerary' tab.

 

What will the weather be like?

The festival celebrates the coming of spring and the passing of winter. Which means nice days and chilly nights with a slight chance of rain, but usually as dry as a camel's hump. It will still be fairly cold so rugging up would be smart. However, the fires warm your bones so wear some layers you can strip off in the heat of the moment. Literally.

 

Do we get dins dins?

No, food is not included but can be bought and eaten on the bus down if full of sugar and/or fat and shared will the rest of the group. Or bought from the many traditional stalls during the festival.

 

Can I bring my own booze?

Hell yeah. We responsibly encourage drinking, although there will be mountains of sangria at the festival if you subtly happen to sneak some pre-game in, we can't really stop you can we?
