Gracia Festival 2015
08/15/2015 – 08/21/2015
Gracia festival 2015 will undoubtedly be one of the greatest summer festivals of Barcelona. The Gràcia festival goes back to the 19th century, when the district underwent a transformation as a district of craftsmen, workers and small traders. Today the festival is celebrated during a week in August with all types of activities: exhibitions, children’s activities, dance, theatre, performances, sports activities and a range of concerts held in characteristic squares such as Plaça del Sol or Plaça de la Vil•la. One of the main attractions is the originality and creativity with which neighbours decorate their streets based on a specific theme. Decorations are prepared throughout the year and the streets compete for first prize.
