After Russafart, there will be more fairs and festivals in Valencia. So that you don’t miss out on some of the key cultural events this month, we’ll tell you more on the blog of our Spanish school, El Rincón del Tándem 😊
To give you an idea of what’s going to happen in Valencia over the next two days, our Spanish language El Rincón del Tándem tells you about fairs and festivals in Valencia.
The Valencian summer is usually full of cultural events of various kinds. Some of them have a long history and are essential dates on the city’s annual agenda.
Let’s take a look at them in detail…
XXXIII Feria Alternativa
From Friday 10 to Sunday 12
Jardines del Turia, between Puente de la Exposición and Puente de las Flores
This weekend the Alternative Fair, one of the city’s most emblematic and longest-running socio-cultural events, returns to the Turia Gardens.
As every year, the Fair promotes sustainable lifestyles with organic food and craft stalls.
In addition, the Fair generates spaces for reflection and knowledge, thanks to its rich programme of talks, documentaries, activities and workshops that deal with key issues such as the environment, feminism, health, etc.
Also, there will be live music with performances by reggae, Greek music, rumba groups, etc.
Finally, we encourage you to consult the full programme to design your own route through the fair.
An alternative outdoor plan to enjoy, taste and become aware of the world around us!
4 Mar i Jazz
From Friday 10 to Sunday 12
Parque Dr. Lluch (Cabañal neighbourhood)
Ticket: 15-20 euros
We move now to the beach to visit another summer festival in Valencia.
This weekend the Mar i Jazz Festival celebrates its fourth edition in the usual location of the Dr. Lluch Park.
Mar i Jazz is a Jazz music festival with national and international musical proposals.
The festival site has 4 stages where renowned groups and artists will perform. Among them: Thaïs Morell (Friday, 7.30pm), The Sey Sisters (Saturday, 7.30pm) and Ariel Brínguez (Saturday, 9pm), JPattersson (Saturday, 10.30pm).
In addition to live music, the Festival has a Gastro Zone where you can taste the typical tapas of Cabañal.
Finally, the festival renews its commitment to local commerce with the Eco&Artesanía Market. A space that brings together 25 stalls of local crafts and sustainable products.
Sounds too good to miss, doesn’t it? 😊
Here you can find more information about the festival and ticket sales.
XIII Human Fest
From the 10th to the 17th of June
Various venues and cinemas in Valencia
The Human Fest is a film and human rights festival that aims to raise public awareness of the human rights situation in the world.
In this year’s edition, the festival focuses on migration and refugee issues from an anti-racist and gender perspective.
The Human Fest welcomes various types of audiovisual formats and genres. From fiction to documentary, from reportage to animation, and from short film to feature film.
In total, more than 60 audiovisual works from Spain and other parts of the world will form part of this diverse and highly interesting programme.
In addition, this year the Festival goes out to the squares to bring cinema and debates to the neighbourhoods of Nazaret, Orriols and Patraix.
Another novelty will be the screening of two films that were supposed to premiere at Docudays UA, the documentary film festival on human rights in Ukraine.
So that you don’t miss anything about the festival, we suggest you visit the official website.
We hope this post helps you to enjoy fairs and festivals in Valencia.
As always, our Spanish school, El Rincón del Tándem, encourages you to continue practising your Spanish outside the classroom and in your daily life.
