Time Out says

'Venezuela Day' heads back to Poble Espanyol for its 11th edition with a day set up to celebrate the culture, music and gastronomy of the South American country as well as bringing together the Venezuelan community, which is increasingly bigger and more active in Catalonia. Organised by ASOCAVEN, the festivities also serve to give support to charitable initiatives, such as the Lean Association with its 'one pill' campaign, Meals4hope, Catnova, and Ven Da Tu Mano, Al Norte del Sur and El Foro Penal, all of which share a goal of collecting and sending medicine, food or aid to Venezuela; as well as the Association of Retired Persons of Catalonia (PEJUCAT) that helps retired Venezuelans in the area.

Starting at 1pm and until 1am you can enjoy a good bunch of food trucks that bring typical Venezuelan food to you, including arepas, cachapas, tequeños, empanadas, patacones, and many other tasty specialities. There's also fun on tap for the kids in the family, and you can catch traditional Araguaney dance performances.

All day Venezuelan groups and artists who make their living in Barcelona perform to liven up the atmosphere with music, among them Tambores de Mi Pueblo, Patanemo's Latin Banda and La Guachafita. Closing out the party are the Official Tribute to Blanquito Man of KingChangó, and Cuando los 90 atacan.
