Today in the blog we are going to talk about the famous Gràcia festival, more precisely called Fiesta Major de Gràcia, which is a free festival that takes place in the streets of the district every year in August. This year, the festival takes place from Sunday 15 August to Friday 21 August 2021. This festival is open to the public, so it is not necessary to buy a ticket. You can go at any time to enjoy this wonderful moment with your loved ones. This festival is very well known throughout Barcelona, especially among children, as there are countless activities in which they can get involved while enjoying themselves and having fun.
During this week, the streets of this very bohemian and relaxed neighbourhood come alive with numerous shows and concerts. The concept of this vibrant festival is that the streets of Gràcia must compete to win the prize for the best decorated street. This is why you can see streets full of festivities and flamboyant, sparkling decorations that will blow your mind!
The Gràcia district takes rivalry very seriously as the standards are very high. There is a different theme for each street and any subject can be represented, which gives us a colourful and very diversified show. Take a walk through the streets of Gràcia and you will be amazed by the canvases of colourful decoration that are above you and the creativity and originality that each street demonstrates.
The district also offers numerous events such as giant processions, devil dances and a large fireworks display.
