what's on

This weekend brings the beginning of March, along with it the start of Fallas celebrations, one of the biggest events of the year. As we bid farewell to February, start the new month off with a whole host of activities.

Friday 1st March

Kick off the weekend with a Friday full of music with every corner of Valencia offering something to appeal to everyone. Renowned favourite Radio City brings Asturian alternative rock band Dragon First to its stage, whilst across the city, Les Arts is planning an exclusive performance of Orpheo and Euridice tailored for audiences under 28.

Saturday 2nd March

The experimental pyrotechnics show “Pólvora a la vespra” is set to return for its fourth year to Valencia starting this coming Saturday, March 2. Conceived as a platform for boundless experimentation during the Fallas festival, four Fallas commissions in the city will showcase these displays, with three of them happening almost simultaneously. The festivities kick off with the Fallas commission of Plaza del Pintor Segrelles launching the event at 8 p.m., featuring a show by Pirotecnia Vulcano. Following at 8:30 p.m., the Maestro Gozalbo-Conde de Altea’s commission will take the stage with Pirotecnia FX Caballer. At 9:00 p.m., the Convento Jerusalem-Matemático Marzal commission will present a show by Pirotecnia Aitana.

Saturday will also bring together the football teams and fans of Valencia and Real Madrid to the iconic Mestalla Stadium in what is set to be an intense football match. With Real Madrid’s recent success powering them, and Valencia leveraging their home advantage, this promises to be a captivating and nail-biting match for all.

Sunday 3rd March

The weekend rounds off with the eagerly awaited official start to the Fallas celebrations, La Crida (the call of the Fallas). Torres de Serrano will be lit up in the evening with fireworks, music and singing, as well as speeches from the Falleras Mayores and Valencia’s Mayor. This is a truly patriotic celebration, with the Valencian anthem and part of the Spanish anthem being sung too, followed by a parade to Plaza de la Virgen. La Crida also provides events throughout the day, including marching bands throughout the city and the first mascleta of the year in Plaza del Ayuntamiento.
