Rioja day – 9th June 2023

Move over Beaujolais, Rioja is in town.

We’re taking this event back to its roots. Cast your mind back to Beaujolais Day when it first launched as a networking opportunity for businesses in Swansea.

Swansea BID have relaunched Rioja to complement Beaujolais and give the business community an additional opportunity to come together and experience the beating heart of the city.

Join us for a day of networking, food, and enjoying the very best of Swansea. Let’s make this a day to remember and something to look forward to alongside Beaujolais day every year!

About Rioja Day

Rioja Day is a day for celebration and that’s what we’re going to do! Granted, we’re borrowing a day of celebration from elsewhere, but we’re giving it a sprinkle of Swansea flavour.

So, what is Rioja Day? Celebrated annually in the autonomous community of La Rioja to mark the anniversary of their statute approval. Known for its wine, this community has one of the smallest populations in Spain.

During the celebrations of Rioja Day, the people host art exhibitions, concerts, meals and events throughout the day. For us, Rioja Day means coming together to strengthen our business relationships and to celebrate Swansea with a glass or two of world-famous wine.
