Festa Major de Gràcia
Will you be in Barcelona this August? We hope so… Cause it means you will be able to join the amazing Festa Major de Gràcia!
For one week in August, this beautiful neighborhood gets turned into a 24 hour fantasyland, attracting about one and a half million visitors every year!
The Festa Major de Grácia is a colourful street festival that fills many streets and plazas of the Gracia area. There are concerts, neighborhood meals, contests, games, and performances. The whole neighborhood gets together to put on a memorable party!
And here’s the best part: 17 streets and squares of Gracia will be incredibly decorated during the festival. The decorations are hand-made by the residents mostly with recicled materials. It is part of the contest to become the most beautiful Gràcia street! And trust us… They take the competition veeeery seriously!
You will see it: the whole neighborhood gets transformed into a fantasy world!
Many activities during the Festa Major de Gràcia are only for the residents, however, you must come by for the concerts and to enjoy the decorations! This festival is totally free; there’s no need for tickets. Just an advice: on the first night of the Gracia festival, it will be very crowded. Be patiente, it will be woth it. And take good care of your belongings.
