Sant Antoni "El del Porquet" is the patron saint of animals and one of the most deeply-rooted saints in the municipality. His feast day is celebrated on 17th January, although the events are concentrated on the Sunday following the feast day.

Highlights include the monumental bonfire that is lit on the eve of the saint's feast day, the colourful procession with horses, carts, traditional costumes, the music of the "dolçaina i el tabalet" and, of course, the popular lunches and dinners around the bonfire.

Between February and March, just before the beginning of Lent, the streets of Alcocéber are flooded with joy and humour in the celebration of its Carnival.

A whole weekend in which it is impossible not to be infected by the joy of the locals who celebrate costume dances and parades for both children and adults. The festival closes on the last day with the emblematic and biting wake for King Carnestoltes and the Burial of the Sardine.


Saint Pedro de Verona

The 29th of April is the feast day of San Pedro de Verona, patron saint of the local young bachelors, popularly known as "fadrins", who are in charge of organising a week of festivities in honour of the saint.

The main events revolve around bullfighting and the singing of "Les Albaes", a peculiar style of traditional Valencian singing that dates back to the Middle Ages. On "de Albaes" nights, the singer, accompanied by "dolçaina and tabalet", recites satirical and humorous verses related to the daily life of the villagers, recalling the gossip that has spread from mouth to mouth over the last year. It's impossible to contain your blushes and laughter!
