Incase you’re sticking around in Valencia this month, we wanted to give you an idea of what’s going on in the city. Summer may be on its way out but that doesn’t mean the fun has to stop. With so many cancellations and reschedulings over the summer months, fall time will hopefully be bringing more events and activities to Valencia once again!
So, if you’re here in September, here are some cool and safe activities you can take advantage of…
A fun, cheap and outdoorsy option in Valencia is always the beach! While the weather is still great it is the best option for families and kids right now who want to have a low-cost and enjoyable day out. Not to mention, many tourists are leaving the city as we speak and so that means more space to keep that required social distance and a safer outing all round!
Valencia’s main beaches include El Saler which is a natural beach south of the city (accessible by bus and bike), Playa Malvarrosa and Playa Patacona (both of which are town beaches accessible by tram, bus, bike or walking).
In September Valencia will be hosting a variety of food festivals, of course while still taking necessary health and safety precautions for its visitors. Here we’ll discuss two of the most iconic food fairs that will be taking place …
This event is hosted in an exquisite location. Have you ever seen the “Veles e Vents” building? It is a modern building with a cool architectural structure and it’s located in “La Marina de Valencia”.
The festival will host musical performances, food trucks and plenty of drinks throughout September! The only requirement is that you must be over 18 years of age. In order to buy tickets you need to select your date and book in advance on their website here.
The famous Meat Carnival takes place from September 23rd to September 27th @ “La Marina de Valencia”. That’s five awesome days to enjoy charcoal-grilled meat, live music, monologues and a good time in the biggest “meat festival” in Spain. For more info on this event and how to buy tickets, check out their website here.
Live music events and concerts were massively affected this summer due to the lockdown and subsequent safety measures. Luckily, things are getting better and musical/ cultural events are getting back to normal. Many groups and artists had to cancel or postpone their concerts here in Valencia but there are still a few that are being held in September!
Artists like Vetusta Morla, Beret, Manuel Carrasco and Izal will be taking the stage in Valencia this month in places like the Plaza de Toros de Valencia (Valencia’s Bull Ring) and also La Marina de Valencia (Valencia’s Harbor).
It’s been difficult for us that we have not been able to enjoy the cultural and historical parts of Valencia this summer. However we are excited to say that this month many cultural centers and museums will be opening their doors again. Monuments like “Torres de Quart” and “La Lonja de la Seda” are reopening in September. If you are interested in Valencia’s history and want to immerse yourself in this part of the culture, you are now able to do so.
However, there are some safety protocols to follow, such as:
– Individual visits with groups no larger than 16 people.
– Face masks are mandatory during visits.
– Keeping a safe distance of 2 metres at all times.
– Using hand sanitizer upon entry.
– Following the set viewing route marked by arrows.
Valencia is excited to welcome back ‘Titanic the Exhibition’. It is set to be hosted @ Kinépolis, a shopping mall in Valencia. The exhibition features around 200 objects which were rescued from the famous shipwrecked cruiseliner. These objects and the story of the Titanic are on display for all visitors.
The exhibition costs 7€ to enter until September 13th, and the opening hours are from 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm. It’s an awesome family visit and a fun activity during these limited times!
