Last week you could read our article about Feria de Julio 2018 in Valencia. Don’t worry if you weren’t able to attend any of the abundance of events because guess what – the feria continues till the end of July so there’s still plenty of time to catch up!
Maybe you were wondering what to do with your kids as it’s impossible to engage in any activity during the day due to the current heat wave. Well, La Feria de Atracciones is the answer! It’s located in the riverbed between the Peineta bridge and puente de las flores. It’s open from Monday to Friday from 6 pm to 1 am and on Saturdays and Sundays from 6 pm to 2 am. As we already said in the previous article, apart from the typical funfair carousels you can take a ride on the famous Ferris wheel (Noria) and enjoy the stunning views of Valencia.
In Jardines Viveros (next to the Museum of Fine Arts) the series of concerts continues. Have a look at the program. Tickets can be bought online on the same page.
The highlights of this week’s fair are: concert ABBA: The new experience (Thursday 19th of July, 10 pm, gardens at Palau de la Música), outdoor concert by Berklee campus students (Friday 20th of July, 8 pm, South Lake of the Science museum), and of course Gran Nit de Juliol (The Big Night), one of the main events of the fair that takes place on Saturday 21st of July. What is prepared for you? Open-air concerts with lots of jazz, theatre, magic performances, and traditional dances. All the museums in Valencia will be open at night and the entrance is free! At 6 pm there will be a Church Bell Concert in Plaza de la Reina (Micalet Tower) and at 7 pm a traditional parade called La Cercafira going from C/ La Paz, to C/ San Vicente and Av. Maria Cristina. Check the full program of the fair here.
At 20:30 after the parade there will be a mascletà in Plaza del Portal Nuevo. If you were in Valencia during Las Fallas, you know what we are talking about. For those who don’t, mascletá is basically firework display without visual effects, just a concert of gunpowder. It doesn’t mean though that it’s not worth seeing. Remember that you won’t see mascletà outside of Spain.
As you can see, the agenda is full, you just have to go and enjoy yourself!
