It’s been going on for a couple weeks now, but we finally made it down to the Festival of Nations in the Turia riverbed, near the Alameda metro station.
The festival, which features stands from over 50 countries on 5 continents, seems to have grown in size and professionalism. They’ve laid down a wooden floor for dancing, and the stage is much larger than in previous years.
Last night, we enjoyed a hefeweizen (Germany) and a caipirinha (Brazil). Besides food and drink, you can find handmade goods from all over the world, and enjoy live performances almost every hour. It’s finally starting to feel like summertime in Valencia, and this is a great place to spend a couple hours with friends.
The festival runs through June 13th.
