Since 2018, the ubiquitous Valencian paella has its own day! Locals and tourists can celebrate on September 20 with a delicious paella.
The World Paella Day will take place every September 20 with the aim of sharing Valencia’s most famous dish internationally, to “link the prestige of the paella with its place of origin”, and to place Valencia as a gastronomic destination.
This year, Turespaña, the City Council and Turisme CV will present the first edition featuring a “showcooking” of nine different paellas from various spots of the Valencian Community. The official hashtag is #WorldPaellaDay which also includes the local flag as well as the color blue, a reference to the Mediterranean sea.
