Free Street Party at Gracia neighbourhood
The Fiestas de Gràcia involve 8 days (and nights) of pretty much solid partying. Each August the Gràcia village district erupts into a carnival-like display of decorated streets. Residents compete for the prize of ‘best decorated street’.
What is Gracia Quarter Festivity?
The concept of Gracia festival is that the residents of the district decorate their streets and compete to win the prize of being the best street. They make decorations in the carnival style and the themes could be really different, but the standarts are high and in general all the district turns to be very beautiful. Walk through the streets of Gràcia and you will be amazed by the colourful decorations that are above you and creativity that each street demonstrates.
