When planning your trip to Valls, keep in mind the area’s main human tower events for the full castellera experience.

Sant Joan Eve or Night Prayers

(23 June)

The night of 23 June, before the big day, is one of the most important festivals in Valls. A procession singing ballads takes to the streets and the Xiquests de Valls give a night human tower performance following the centuries-old tradition of building simultaneous castells over the course of the day. The performance kicks off the Sant Joan festivities.

Sant Joan

(24 June)

The Sant Joan Baptista de Valls Festival, celebrated around 24 June, kicks off the traditional castells season and is the most iconic event in Valls and a symbol of Catalonia. Enjoy an incredible Seguici Cerimonial, a popular parade that includes dancing, animal-shaped figures, theatre performances and traditional theatre. In the centre of Plaça del Blat a plaque marks the epicentre of the casteller universe.

Firagost

(First Wednesday of August)

Firagost, Camp Català’s annual festival, is celebrated on the first Tuesday and Wednesday of August with a massive showcase of regional products. The awnings that cover Plaça del Blat, Carrer de la Cort, Plaça de l’Oli and other spaces are part of Catalonia’s ephemeral heritage. The second duel between the human tower teams in Valls has taken place during this festival since 1954.

National Day of Catalonia

(10 September)

On the eve of September 11th, the National Day of Catalonia, the castellers compete once again in a performance held at the epicentre of the casteller world.

Santa Úrsula Festival

(21 October or the following Sunday)

The Santa Úrsula Festival, celebrated in Plaça del Blat, is one of the most important days in Catalonia, closing the traditional castells calendar for the year. It has hosted the Fòrum Casteller, a large cross-disciplinary castell fair, since 2012.
