Gracia Festival - Festa Major de Gracia - August 15-21

The Neighborhood Festival of Gracia, celebrated during the last half of August, is an incredibly well-organized and artsy local fiesta. Gràcia's residents spend months planning parades, concerts, floats, arts & crafts activities and more.

During the day, events are held in the area's brightly decorated streets and squares. Acrobats build amazing human towers; performers dress up as giants and devils to express Catalan folklore.

At night, the Festa Major de Gracia inspires live music, dancing, fireworks and general partying outdoors. Best of all, it's not just for those who live there: the whole city heads to Gràcia to join in the fun!

The Festa Major de Gracia is a good occasion to come to Barcelona with your friends to enjoy this amazing event and discover this beautiful city. You don't know where to find a budget accommodation? Easy...Click here!
