Are you ready to immerse yourself in the neighbourhood life? If you want to continue knowing Valencia, our Spanish school El Rincón del Tándem suggests some useful ideas 😉

You don’t know how to do it? Do not worry! We have selected events for you that combine art, local culture and entertainment.

Therefore, we invite you to join these parties and continue learning Spanish, losing the sense of shame and getting to know about Valencian food and customs.

Bonic/a Fest 2019

Saturday, 14th
Markets of Valencia
Free entrance

Valencia starts autumn season in style, celebrating the markets as a focal point of neighbourhood life.

The Bonic/a Fest is back! The big festival of the markets of Valencia that this year celebrates its IV edition. This Saturday, 13 municipal markets will join this great celebration of local gastronomy and culture, opening its doors in night time.

Therefore, we encourage you to immerse yourself in this sensory experience, walking through the local trading posts and indulging your palate tasting Valencian products.

Furthermore, you will have the opportunity to know better the community life of the neighbourhoods, chatting with the vendors and learning curiosities about the culture and gastronomic customs.

And don’t be surprised to hear the word “bonic / a“! It is not a mistake, but a way of addressing someone with much love 🙂

We remind you that in all markets there will be entertainment and music shows starting at 8:00 p.m. To consult the map of the markets and the program of activities, click here.

Finally, we highlight that the event is also an occasion to promote sustainable trade at km 0 and encourage responsible consumption and a healthy lifestyle.

So, bonicos/as, are you ready for this great night?

Migrats Circ 2019. Ciclo de piezas circenses de calle

Saturday, 14th and Sunday, 15th. 07.00 pm.
Plaza Nápoles y Sicilia and Teatro Inestable
Free entrance depending on the show

The circus returns to Valencia with the Migrants Circ 2019. A cycle of street performing arts promoted by Espacio Inestable.

The protagonists will be migrant artists who left their country of origin to perform their art. Therefore, that is a “migrant” cycle, in which diversity feeds artistic expression and makes it more interesting…

The pieces that will take place in Nápoles y Sicilia square are all open access. On the contrary, to attend the long pieces of the Arritmados and Finestra Nou Circi companies, you have to get tickets.

Both will be held at Teatro Inestable, a space and a cultural project that we advise you to get to know…

Finally, we invite you to consult this website for more information and ticket sales.

That’s a unique opportunity to enjoy art informally…
