Las Fallas Festival 2018

Valencia, Spain

15th - 20th March 2018

Setting fire to things at Las Fallas Valencia Festival 2018

Spain is famous for its unique and crazy street festivals, and this fiesta is one-of-a-kind. Stoke’s Las Fallas 2018 includes camping or cabin-style accommodation, sleeping bags, hot hearty breakfast each morning and delicious dinner every night, experienced guides to lead you through the madness, a St Patrick’s Day campsite party and unlimited beer & sangria on offer for just €10 a day!

Las Fallas 2018 takes place in Valencia, a city of just 1 million inhabitants, but this increases to around 3 million flame-lovers during the event. Las Fallas is a celebration of the coming of spring. It is a festival to wish a jubilant bon voyage to winter, where locals bid farewell to those cold days and even colder nights by building giant ninots (puppets or dolls) out of cardboard, wood, paper machè and plaster, and then burn them to the ground. There are spectacular fireworks set off from every angle, and, of course, drinking sangria and dancing in the streets.

The ninots are made to look lifelike and usually fit in with current events, poking fun at Spanish politicians and celebrities. The massive structures are sometimes lifted into place by cranes on the day of la plantà or the rising, and they remain here until the 19th March, the day of the burning. Young men wander around the city with axes making little hard-to-spot holes in the ninots and stuffing them full of fireworks. Just before midnight the crowds in Valencia start to chant, the streetlights are turned off and finally at midnight the ninots are set on fire. What follows is an explosion of fireworks, roaring fires and full-on excitement.
