We are glad to present Fallas Event 2022 after 2 years of pandemia. We will host 20 participants in Alboraya (A village 5 minutes by metro from Valencia).
What is Fallas? From the 1st to 19th March, València is overturned by Fallas celebrations, a festivity that combines tradition, satire and art which shouldn’t be missed for anything in the world.
Fallas is also the name of the monuments, works of art which, in some cases, cost millions of euros.
We will see the Plantà on 15th, when all the monuments that are set up in Valencia must be fully finished by the morning of 16th. That is the day that the judges award the best ones and choose the "ninot indultat", the only figure to be saved from the burning.
Participants will learn how to make "Agua de Valencia" and Sangria, so they can do it in their own countries after the event, they will taste horchata as well!
Fallas is full of fire, so we will enjoy impressive firework displays filling the sky with light and colour during the "Nit del foc" (Night of the fire).
Before the event finishes on 20th morning, participants will see "La Cremà" on the 19th, when all monuments will start to burn.
Everyone should come to Fallas at least once in their life, although we’ll warn you now, with everything that there is to see and do you’re sure to want to experience it again!
----------------------------- COVID measures -----------------------------
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and the increased numbers of infections, AEGEE-Valencia as hosting Local is going to adhere to the following COVID measures during their event:
❖ Implement mask wearing during the entire event, minus during eating or drinking;
❖ Ventilate and aerate spaces as much as possible;
❖ Clean high touch surfaces regularly;
❖ Encourage the practicing of hand hygiene amongst both organisers, helpers and participants;
❖ Provide hand sanitiser to participants and organisers;
❖ Keep social distancing where possible and promote this under participants as well;
❖ Create a social bubble with the participants, and if possible also smaller social bubbles among participants;
❖ Do not take unnecessary risks such as inviting externals to the events, going to crowded areas where social distancing cannot be adhered to;
❖ Adhere to the national regulations as applicable in your city, and make sure that participants know of these national regulations before coming to the event and are reminded of them during the event.
❖ Create a disclaimer/liability waiver which has the COVID measures for the event written into it, which need to be signed by participants of the event prior to the start of it (e.g. during opening ceremony) to make sure they are aware of the measures in place during the event.
❖ If possible, each participant has to take an antigen test or PCR test prior to the event, with it being a maximum of 48 hours old at the start of the event. Based on whether or not you implement this in your event, you should have it written down in the liability release waiver.
❖ If someone tests positive for the COVID-19 virus, they are put in isolation immediately, as well as any people who were in close contact with them. Those who were in close contact have to be tested.
