PUBLIC HOLIDAYS FOR THE VALENCIA REGION 2023

They include a mix of religious Roman Catholic, national and regional ones and are taken on the exact day they fall whether that be midweek or weekend. The holiday is not moved to the Monday or Friday to create three-day weekends as is often done in other countries. This means that a large percentage of people take days off, a ‘puente’ which means bridge, to create long weekends which last for four or five days! Known as ‘red days’, each municipality is allowed to have a maximum of 14 public holidays per year; a maximum of 9 of these are chosen by the national government and at least 2 are chosen locally.
During a public holiday in Spain everything except the bars, cafes, restaurants, emergency services and a handful of shops like petrol stations close down. Nothing is open, so make sure you have planned for the national and regional Public Holidays!
There are many local Public Holidays plus the ‘Dia de Valencia ’ which is observed in the province of Valencia only and is on the 9th October. The Public Holidays which are observed in all regions of Spain are: -

BENIDORM FIESTA DATES FOR 2023 NOTE: These dates are for guidance as events can be changed or cancelled without prior notice.
The San Juan Fiesta is held every year to celebrate the shortest night and the longest day of the year and marks the beginning of summer.
This is an old Pagan ritual based on fire and water. It originated in the neighbouring city of Alicante and dates back to when Alicantinos farmers celebrated the longest day of the year on which the harvest was gathered, and the shortest night where all evil is destroyed. This is the meaning of the fiesta, with the destruction of bad feelings and bad experiences, and welcoming new desires.
The fiesta actually starts with the building of the bonfires etc from 21st June (Summer Solstice) but the main fiesta where everyone will be on the beach starts at around 20.30 on 23rd June and runs into the early hours of 24th.
Unfortunately this is not held in Benidorm itself due to the strict laws prohibiting beach fires, due to the risk of burns to people who come to the beach next day, from glowing embers under the sand, but there will be plenty of people on the beaches running into the sea to bring in San Juan and the beaches are officially open until 02.00.
Local Police will be watching the beaches; there will also be ambulances, a surveillance or rescue vessel and rescue coordinator, a beach chief, three nurses and three technical drivers and lifeguards, to make sure the night goes without any incidents.
Public toilets will be open until 03:00.
*Remember that it is not allowed to make bonfires or access the beaches with glass containers.
Levante beach from previous years.
The main event is only a short distance away in La Cala de Finestrat.
La Cala 2022
Albir - This year, the Racó de l'Albir beach will be open with no capacity limitations for the San Juan celebration, but as in Benidorm NO general bonfires are permitted, nor glass of any description, there will however be an enclosed area with an official bonfire, which will be controlled by the security at all times.
There will be a bar available serving food and drinks and music with guest DJ´s
The Fire Element
Huge bonfires and papier mache figures are built on the beaches, and tradition has it that if you jump over them 3 times your spirit will be cleansed and purified.
At midnight the bonfires are lit and people will be seen jumping over the ashes to "Cleanse the Spirit"
The Water Element
According to Pagan tradition the water element is seen to recuperate and rejuvenate again bringing good luck for the coming year.
As midnight approaches everyone moves closer to the shore line where some will just paddle others will go for a swim again this is to bring luck for the new season and wash away evil spirits.
This is a great evening and one not to be missed if you are here. The beaches will be very very busy as its a popular fiesta.
Pack swimwear and do what all the locals do and take a picnic, get there nice and early as there will be 1000´s there. There will be temporary bars along the beach and music into the early hours and of course fireworks, no fiesta is complete without fireworks.
Information on 2022 Fiestas in Benidorm
All Saints Day in Spain (Todos Los Santos) takes place on November 1st. It is a very important national public holiday when people from all over the country return to their town or village to lay flowers on the graves of deceased relatives. There are few religious days that mean quite so much to the ordinary people of Spain as this day.
The traditional thing to do on All Saints Day is to purchase flowers, especially chrysanthemums and present them as gifts to their loved ones. It is the day of the year when the most flowers are sold, and the cemeteries are filled with colour from every type of flower imaginable. A beautiful sight to see, indeed! Churches also hold mass in memories of those deceased to supposedly shorten their time spent in purgatory.
As with most festivals throughout the country there are a number of special dishes which are associated with All Saints’ Day. amongst these is the tradition of eating roasted chestnuts, castañas,
Pannellets, small almond cakes apparently which are reminders of the days when home made cakes and offerings were left with the bodies of the dead.
Huesos de santo – the saint’s bones – which have marzipan, eggs and sugar syrup and buñuelos de viento.
Puffs of wind – which are doughnuts liberally sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar.
There are times when it is easy to forget how catholic Spain can be but All Saints’ Day is a powerful reminder of the importance of religion, and of the family, even in the modern age.
Note that all shops, banks, schools and offices will be closed on All Saints' Day in Spain, this is known as a Red Day (National Holiday), in some areas if the 1st falls on a Sunday the Monday will also be taken as a holiday.

Benidorm´s Moors and Christians Fiesta – 28th September to 2nd October 2022
This Fiesta generally takes place at the end of September to Early October
Streets decked out like the Middle Ages, magnificent processions, exciting mock battles…This is the festival of Moors and Christians: days filled with magic, legend and spectacle. this festival recreates the historic clash between two cultures.
The festival of Moors and Christians is a very old tradition that dates back to the 16th century. It commemorates the confrontation that took place between Moorish and Christian soldiers in the 13th century over the rule of Spain. The events are held in honour of the city's patron saint who also played a decisive role in the battle. Thanks to the saint's sudden and unexpected intervention, victory went to the Christians in spite of their being outnumbered by the Moors.
The attraction, grandeur and popular nature of these festivities have caused them to spread to many parts of Spain, although they are especially popular in Valencia and Alicante. There are many variations on these festivities, as each place has its own history and unique elements that set it apart from the rest.
The start of the festivities is truly spectacular and well worth seeing: the arrival of both armies in the city. Beginning in the early hours of the morning, the streets, balconies and windows fill with people intent on not missing a single thing. To the accompaniment of music and with all the pomp and majesty you could hope for, the various groups that make up the Moorish and Christian factions march in procession, desperately trying to outshine each others sumptuous costumes. It tends to be one of the most popular and impressive events and in certain cases.
Another part of the festivities are the religious ceremonies held in honour of the city's patron saint. During the festivities, a floral offering takes place in honour of the Apostle Saint James, followed by a High Mass in the Church of Saint James and Saint Ana.
The spectacular final battle. It follows the so-called "embajadas" (meeting of envoys) in which each side reads a text in an attempt to persuade the other side to surrender. Once negotiations have failed, a mock battle ensues in which thousands of kilos of gunpowder is used, ending in victory for the Christians.
The final battle also marks the end of the festival.

December 24th Christmas Eve – In Spain, Christmas Eve is called Nochebuena and marks the most important family meeting of the year. People usually spend the late afternoons and early evening with friends for a few drinks and tapas, then head back home to enjoy a nice family dinner. After their evening meal, the whole family will go to church for the traditional midnight Mass or “Misa Del Gallo”, which in a devoutly Roman Catholic country is much more than a ‘Carol Service’ event and holds great significance as an important part of Christmas.
December 25th – Christmas Day is celebrated as a national holiday in Spain, so all the shops are closed. This day is not celebrated as the typical ¨day for presents¨ as that day occurs on the 6th of January when the Three Kings bring the presents for the children, but more of a day to relax and spend time with families. There is typically a big lunchtime meal with the family and friends.
December 28th –The day of Santos Inocentes (Holy Innocents) is celebrated much like another Western holiday, April Fool’s Day. This holiday finds children and adults playing practical jokes on each other. This is a fun day to run wild and play some pranks on your friends and family.
Christmas and New Year in Benidorm
December 31st - New Year's Eve
New Years Eve in Benidorm - Benidorm says goodbye to 2022 from Paseo de Levante with music and fireworks.
The organisers of the event are Benidorm Town Hall and Ociobal and Abreca associations.
The party will begin at 18.00 and last until 01.30 with performances by 3 local DJS and national and international entertainment, the main stage will be located at Bilboa Avenue, Paseo de Levante, (towards the old town)
The main events will be the bells at midnight from Madrid's Puerta del Sol, followed by a large firework display to welcome 2023. Grapes etc will be provided to help bring in the new year in the traditional Spanish fashion, at 01.00 the party will connect with British TV to follow the bells from Lonjdon's Big Ben.
To give maximum coverage to the bells and scheduled performances, 6 LED screens will be located, one on the stage at Avd Bilbao and 5 more along the Levante Promenade.
More than 5,000 people are expected to attend.
As in previous years the speakers will be directed out to sea to try as little as possible not to disturb neighbours and residents.
New Year’s Eve is called Noche Vieja (old night). The party stays at home for many until midnight, as it is a tradition to eat 12 grapes, one at each chime of the clock. Tradition has it that anyone who manages all 12 grapes, without choking, will have 12 months of prosperity – it’s not as easy as it sounds, but it’s fun to have a go! After the grapes and Cava, the party begins and goes on well into the next morning.
Another other strange tradition in Spain during New Years is to wear red underwear.
The red underwear should be given to you and is to be worn on New Year´s Eve; this is to bring good luck for the upcoming 12 months. All over the shopping centres, markets, and stores you will find red underwear being sold before New Year’s. The tradition dates back to the Middle Ages when it was prohibited to wear red as it was associated with witchcraft, the devil and blood. However, the people would instead wear red underwear that couldn’t be seen as they believed that red was a symbol of life especially during the dark winter months.
Sunday, January 1st - 19:00 New Year's concert by of the Orchestra of the Musical Union from Benidorm with Marlene Aquino. Auditorium of the Cultural Center.
BENIDORM´S NEW YEARS DAY - January 1st– This public holiday is generally reserved for recuperating from the festivities from the night before. Most shops are closed, and people tend to stay at home and recover.
There are parades and processions throughout Spain during the evening where participants receive sweets and candies thrown from the floats. After all the excitement outdoors, and just before going to bed, children traditionally leave their shoes out (not their stockings here!) so that the Three Kings can leave gifts – just as they did with the infant Jesus.
The Three Kings parade 18.00
The parade will leave at around 18.00 from Parque de Elche (Dove Park) winding around the streets of Avenue of Los Almendros, Calle Marte, Calle Venus, Calle Ruzafa and Herreriias, finishing at the Julio Iglesias auditorium, where there will be multimedia show and fireworks and the traditional distribution of gifts takes place.
The Auditorium will be open from 17.30, entry is FREE
January 6th –This date marks the Feast of the Epiphany, which is when the Three Kings arrived in Bethlehem. Much like Christmas Day around the rest of the world, this is the most important day for Spanish children. In the morning, they will awake to find that Los Reyes Magos (The Three Kings) have brought them gifts. Families typically start the day on 6th January with a huge breakfast that includes a large, ring-shaped cake called “Roscon de los Reyes”. The traditional sweet treat comes with dried fruits and two surprises hidden inside – the person who finds the ‘prize’ becomes King or Queen for the day, while whoever finds the unlucky ‘bean’ pays for next year’s cake!
