Festa Major de Gràcia 2015

  • Things to do, Festivals

Time Out says

The neighbourhood of Gràcia was once an independent town, only absorbed into Barcelona proper at the end of the 19th century. Its community spirit remains strong, as evidenced by the consistent hard work put into this annual Festa Major (‘big party’ in Catalan). The main attraction is the street decoration competition, which sees some 25 associations strive to create the most elaborate and incredible metamorphosis of an ordinary road into, perhaps, a jungle, an underwater scene or a zombie hangout. The week-long party includes traditional Catalan culture, fun for the kids, and lots of street food and drink.
