15 – 16 March: People start arriving to the campsite. There’ll be campsite chills all day every day. Don’t worry though, we’ll be serving up unlimited beer and sangria all day for only €10 a day.
17 March: It’s St Patrick’s Day which means we are putting on a massive campsite party with unlimited flowing booze and paella for all.
18 March: Wake up to a hearty breakfast at the campsite before heading to Valencia to check out the daytime festivities. Return to Stoke campsite for dinner where we’ll get on the unlimited beer and sangria. Party til the break of dawn!
19 March: Today’s the day, La Crema or the Burning, the biggest night of the Valencia’s festival! Enjoy some free time throughout the day check out the beach or explore the city. After dinner, the guides will lead you into the madness that is Fallas.
20 March: At midnight all the Fallas are set alight with the winning Fallas is the last to burn. After the burning, there is a massive firework display. The ride with us bus will depart right after the Burning Ceremony directly from Valencia centre to return to Barcelona in the morning.
For those staying in Valencia, have a sleep in and enjoy your hot breakfast and a late check in of 11am. We should have well and truly excelled ourselves at partying Fallas-style and we could possibly be broken. We’ll struggle our way through goodbyes, but not before we’ve swapped Facebooks and photos and planned our next trip with Stoke Travel!
The full Fallas itinerary can be found here.
We stay just outside Valencia city at Camping Coll Vert.
