This Friday we are getting ready to enjoy an alternative weekend with our Spanish language students … And you? Are you ready for that?

To give you an idea of what is going to happen in Valencia in the next two days, our Spanish school El Rincón del Tándem has selected some very special plans.

Take a look here below 😉

32 Alternative Fair

Outdoor free event

One of the most expected moments of the year has arrived! This weekend Valencia celebrates the XXXII edition of the Alternative Fair. One of the most emblematic socio-cultural events of the city.

As every year, the Fair is meant to be a space to promote sustainable lifestyles through ecological food and handicraft stalls.

In addition, it fulfils its main objective by promoting the work of social collectives and movements through talks, debates and projections dealing with key issues, like environment, feminism, fight against racism, human rights, etc.

In particular, we advise you to take a look at the program of documentaries that will be screened at the Carpa Negra. Likewise, we invite you also to consult the schedule of talks and debates that will take place in Carpa 01 and 02.

And finally, there will be concerts and performances in the morning, afternoon and evening…

An alternative plan to enjoy, taste and get more aware of the world around us!
