Gracia Street Festival
The main event at Gràcia’s extravagant Festa Major is its street competition, where residents transform some 25 streets into pirate ships, rainforests and Jurassic landscapes. The festival opens with giants and castles in Plaça de la Vila de Gràcia, and climaxes with a ‘correfoc’ and a ‘castell de focs’ (castle of fireworks). In between, there are some 600 activities, from concerts to ‘sardanes’ and bouncy castles. (15th-21th of August).
