Things to do in Valencia in September
And just like that we are already in September! While you may have finished your summer vacations that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy some of the events going on in Valencia this month. Of course, with the health crisis at the moment, events and activities have been cancelled or limited.
So, we wanted to give you a few ideas of things to do in Valencia that are still taking place and that will surely help you to enjoy your time in this awesome city!
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.
Titanic the Exhibition
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!
Local Food Festivals
In September, Valencia will host 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 …
La Fireta de Valencia
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.
And last but not least, why not spend sunny weekends and evenings at the beach! The sunny weather still allows us to enjoy the sand and the sea for a few more weeks to come. Also, many tourists will be leaving the city and so that means more space making it easier to keep the required social distance and have a safer outing all round.
Remember, activities in Valencia don’t stop as soon as summer ends. Get out and enjoy the city!
