New Year in Zaragoza

New Year's Eve

If you want to get off on the right foot in 2018, come and spend a different New Year’s Eve in Zaragoza!

As you probably already know, the tradition in Spain consists in having 12 grapes, one by one, to the rhythm of the twelve strokes of midnight. This moment is the most expected of the night of 31st December and the “campanadas” or bell chimes are broadcast live by almost all TV channels.

We usually have dinner with family or friends and take together the grapes at midnight. In several towns and villages people gather on a square or emblematic place with a clock to share the last moments of the ending year and to begin the new one with an excellent start. It is said that if you succeed in eating the grapes to the rhythm as the bell chimes 12 you will have a year full of luck and prosperity! Just try not to choke on the grapes and burst into laughter!

Even if you don’t believe in magic, why not welcoming the New Year differently by living this experience in Zaragoza?

The City Hall of Zaragoza organizes once again a free access big event for all those who want to say goodbye to the year 2017 on the emblematic Plaza del Pilar in the night of 31st December.
From 23:00, 5000 packs of 12 grapes and party favors will be distributed on the Plaza del Pilar. Remember: at midnight you have to eat them to the beat of the strokes of midnight given by the clock of Zaragoza City Hall.
The Titanes Orchestra will liven the night up from 23:00 till 2:00 and after the 12 « campanadas » a fabulous firework will show the year 2018 kickoff!

New Year's EveMany establishments in the city offer New Year’s Eve parties. For instance, the cultural centre Las Armas offers for this magical night a party with the best music of the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s. The Teatro de las Esquinas and the Starkytch proposes an original vintage party from 1:00, or you can join the “Shake a Round” in La Ley Seca pub, among many other proposals.

You can find more information about the Christmas activities on the agenda of the City Hall of Zaragoza.

Start the New Year 2018 in the most perfect way!
