The Gracia Festival in Barcelona is considered the biggest street festival and we have a lot to tell you! They take place between August 15 and 21, in Barrio Gràcia, which gets covered in immense colors, patterns, and dressings. For a week, the streets are filled with people, music, and an incredible bohemian feeling.
The concept is simple: every street in the neighborhood disputes to be the street with the best decoration. Now you get it: the lights and themes are as original as possible, once the inhabitants take the competition very seriously!
In the Fiesta Mayor de Gracia, you can always find the traditional parades of typical "characters" of Catalonia: the Grossos Caps (giant heads), the Dracs (dragons), the Castellers (human towers), the Bastoners (the famous dances with sticks ), the Grallers (groups of flute players) and the Correfoc (groups of people masked of demons and dragons, who run, jump and dance with fireworks!). Feel the true soul of Barcelona in its most traditional party!
