Barcelona - do - Gracia Festival

Gracia Festival


For one week in August the sleepy streets of Gracia turn full time fiesta during the 'Festa Major de Gracia'.

You have to see this to believe it, it's really that amazing! For one week in August the sleepy streets of Gracia turn full time fiesta during the 'Festa Major de Gracia'..

The concept of this neighbourhood festival is that each street in the neighbourhood competes to win being the best decorated and most of Barcelona and beyond flock to the twisty, turny streets of the barrio to see what those creative Catalans have come up with this year. Best is that every street chooses it's own theme so you could be in an underwater world one minute and a fairytale forest the next..

This never ending set of surprises is complemented by, oh, nothing much, just lots of live music, dance performances, 8 story walking towers, giants, bigheads, dragons and groups of devils dancing to drums and chasing people with fire spitting pitch forks.. So you know, the usual really ;)

why?

Sensational streetscapes and a chance to go under the skin of local (loco) Catalan culture..
