La Calçotada

  • Things to do

Time Out says

It's 'calçot' season, and if you don't know what that means, get yourself to Poble Espanyol to find out and get in on the Catalan tradition of a 'calçotada', which is a big feast based around calçots (Catalan relatives of the leek, served barbecued and with romesco dipping sauce). All ages are invited to strap on a big and get a good serving of calçots and romesco, bread, drinks, and the option of barbecued 'botifarra' sausage as well. You'll also find a gastronomy market and you can do a wine tasting of D.O. Penedès varieties. Tradition and local culture are also on tap for the day with a dance of 'gegants' (giants), 'castells' (human towers), stick dances, 'sardana' dancing, a parade, a crafts workshop, and face painting. You'll also get to dance to Catalan rumba brought to you by Els Delai.
