Summer is full of different events and it’s really a right time to spend your days in Barcelona! Here you can find a lot of popular cultural activities, each district uses these hot months to celebrate their festivals and they invite you to get to know the area better.
And this one is definitely one of our favorites – Festa Major de Gràcia! The district of Gràcia hits the streets in August and they will explode with decorations, art, flowers, fireworks, live music and other entertainment things. You could not miss it!
The Festa Major de Gràcia is the biggest and the most beautiful of Barcelona’s neighbourhood festivals and the most visited one, with around half a million people taking part. It takes place every year from 15th to 21st August and has a huge programme of over 600 events. It’s basically a street festival, organized by families living in Gràcia, with around 17 decorated streets and many Catalan traditions with concerts and activities that fill the streets of Gràcia every night during the festival.
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.
