New Year Axarquia 2018

New Year's Eve (Nochevieja) celebrations in the Axarquia.

There’s nothing like seeing in the new year on your local plaza in Spain. Live music, a cup of champagne and the fun of gulping down 12 grapes at midnight.  Most towns do organise something but here’s a list of those who have been organised enough to publicise their New Year’s Eve events!

Celebrations start from 11.30 in the Plaza del Ayuntamiento. Toast in the New Year with a glass of Cava and 12 grapes, (try and eat them all by the time the bells chime 12 o-clock – I bet you can’t!). You’ll also be handed a goody bag, so a great one for the whole family.
