Enjoy the party and the summer at the Gran Fira de Valencia

The Gran Fira de Valencia is one of the most important events during the summer in Valencia. Its origin is in the July Fair that began in 1871, seeking to attract tourists and Valencians to stay in the city during the summer. The program is really complete, ranging from theatre to gastronomy and through the mythical "Battle of Flors" along with activities in all the neighbourhoods of the city.

 

Among the most outstanding events, we can also highlight the Concerts of Viveros. This year, they will offer many different performances; from international artists to national and Valencian groups. There will be a total of 19 concerts for all tastes during the month of July. Emir Kusturica, Izal, Zoo, Iván Ferreiro, Resident, Caetano Veloso, Rosendo and many more will pass through the stage of the Jardines de Viveros.

 

Among gunpowder and flowers.

Another of the essential meetings is the Grand Nit de Juliol, which on this occasion will be held on Saturday, July 21st. That night will come loaded with many cultural activities spread throughout the city and with the opening of several of the most important museums in Valencia.

 

Moreover, since Valencia is gunpowder, you should give a look to the pyrotechnic calendar with several shows that both Valencians and visitors can enjoy throughout the Grand Fira. A remarkable event is the famous "Battle of Flors" which, since 1891, takes place on the last Sunday of July. Dozens of floats parade with their best decorations throwing flowers while the public throws back carnations at them.

It is always a good time to visit València but, without a doubt, if you do so during the month of July, it is a safe bet. The extensive program of the Gran Fira reaches all corners of the city and its streets and squares are decorated to conquer you with its festive summer atmosphere.
