Valencia is getting ready for the 9 de Octubre celebrations!! 💥🎆🎇🍓🍋🍊⚔️
Yes, the 9th of October is the day of the Valencian Community!! And as such it's a VERY important celebration and is a regional holiday! 👏👏🥳
The proclamation of the party will be presented next Thursday, 28th September, at 20.30hrs, in the Crystal Hall of the Valencia City Council. This is when all the party details will be given.
Together with the Moors and Christians festival, a medieval market will be held, as usual, from Saturday, 7th October to Thursday, 12th October in the Turia Gardens, specifically between the Flower Bridge and the Exhibition Bridge. This market, which was formerly located on the Serranos Bridge and the Plaza de los Fueros (next to the Torres de Serranos), has been relocated to the old bed of the Turia since 2021, the year it decided to move.
The organizer of the market, Valero Merkados Temáticos, has said that the Valencia Medieval Market on October 9, 2023 will include craft stalls, artisan trades, food, gastronomy, fantasy characters such as fairies, stilt-walking fauns, the Medieval Upsala Group, the Brauli dolçaina i tabalet and much more. This will happen between 10.30am in the morning to midnight without interruption.
