Las Fallas Festival
Stoke’s Las Fallas 2019 trip includes cabin-style accommodation with sleeping bag, hot hearty breakfasts each morning and a delicious dinner every night, experienced guides to lead you through the madness, a St Patrick’s Day campsite party and unlimited beer and sangria on offer for just €10 a day!
Las Fallas 2019 takes place in Valencia, and packs around 3 million pyromaniacs into a city of just a million inhabitants. Las Fallas is a celebration of the coming of spring and a chance to wish a jubilant bon voyage to winter. Locals bid farewell to those cold nights by building giant ninots (puppets or dolls) out of cardboard, wood, paper machè and plaster, and then burn them to the ground. There are spectacular fireworks set off from every angle, and, of course plenty of sangria and dancing in the streets.
The ninots are made to look lifelike and usually fit in with current events, poking fun at Spanish politicians and celebrities. The massive structures are sometimes lifted into place by cranes on the day of La Plantà, or “the rising,” and they remain here until La Crema, the day of the burning, on March 19. Young men wander around the city with axes making little hard-to-spot holes in the Ninots and stuffing them full of fireworks. Just before midnight the crowds in Valencia start to chant, the streetlights are turned off, and finally at midnight the ninots are set ablaze. What follows is an explosion of fireworks, roaring fires and a street party to remember (or forget entirely).

March 15 -16
People start arriving to the campsite. There’ll be campsite chills all day every day. Don’t worry though, we’ll be serving up unlimited beer and sangria all day for only €10 a day.
It’s St Patrick’s Day which means we are putting on a massive campsite party with unlimited flowing booze and paella for all.
Wake up to a hearty breakfast at the campsite before heading to Valencia to check out the daytime festivities. Return to Stoke campsite for dinner where we’ll get on the unlimited beer and sangria. Party til the break of dawn!
Today’s the day, La Crema or the Burning, the biggest night of the Valencia’s festival! Enjoy some free time throughout the day check out the beach or explore the city. After dinner, the guides will lead you into the madness that is Fallas.
At midnight all the Fallas are set alight with the winning Fallas is the last to burn. After the burning, there is a massive firework display. The ride with us bus will depart right after the Burning Ceremony directly from Valencia centre to return to Barcelona in the morning.
For those staying in Valencia, have a sleep in and enjoy your hot breakfast and a late check in of 11:00am. We should have well and truly excelled ourselves at partying Fallas-style and we could possibly be broken. We’ll struggle our way through goodbyes, but not before we’ve swapped Facebooks and photos and planned our next trip with Stoke Travel!
The full Fallas itinerary can be found here.
We stay just outside Valencia city at Camping Coll Vert. The campsite is well connected to Valencia city: you can hop on the public bus for just €1.50 (one way) to get into Valencia and enjoy Las Fallas! The campsite is far from remote with full-time security, a bar, restaurant and shop onsite, a great swimming pool, clean amenities and great authentic Spanish atmosphere.
And there’s so much more to the region outside of the festivities! Valencia has a wonderful old walled city, great modern architecture, clubs, restaurants, beaches and bars to explore. Come and see it! You’re going to love it! W do!

I’ve booked with Stoke Travel for Las Fallas for 2 nights. I’ve never been on a tour with them but I thought it would be a good way to experience the festival. I liked the fact they provide accommodations, breakfast, dinner and shuttles into the festivities for a pretty reasonable price.
I went to Las Fallas with a couple of friends. When we were looking for cheap accommodation, we found Stoke and decided to go with them. We took the bus that they had available from Barcelona and that’s where the party started. The staff was really helpful and friendly, the campsite was super fun and very close to the city, the food was delicious, our room was comfy and clean and the price was great for everything we got. We loved the festival and will definitely be back to party with Stoke.
What an incredible weekend in Valencia, Las Fallas is craaazy!
The Stoke Travel crew were brilliant guides. We’ll definitely be going again next year.
A party like no other, the Spanish really know how to throw a street party. Bring on Las Fallas 2018!
My mind was blown at how big the ninots were. The fireworks were sick and we ran around all night going wild in the street parties.
