The Barcelona Feria de Abril de Catalunya is Barcelona's local version of the famous Andalusian ferias, the most famous of which is in Sevilla in the south of Spain every year in April. The Feria de Abril in Barcelona does not have the same popularity in Barcelona as the Andalucian fairs and ferias have in the south of Spain, but the Barcelona Feria de Abril is undeniably a very colourful and festive event.


The April Fair in Barcelona has two main areas and themes. The first theme is the Feria de Abril fairground that features a huge ferris wheel and many funfair rides and fairground attractions including candy-floss, shooting galleries and other amusements. The fairground is on the seafront by the Banys Forum bathing area so you can enjoy spectacular views of the Barcelona coastline and city from the 'noria' ferris wheel.



The second and main theme and area of the Barcelona Feria de Abril de Catalunya is the 'casetas' area.  Caseta means 'little house'  in Spanish. The casetas are marquee tents temporarily erected at the Barcelona forum fair area for the Feria de Abril. There are around 70 casetas operated by a variety of organisations and groups that range from banks to political parties to private organisations. In each caseta you will find a happy throng of visitors crowd eating, singing and above all dancing the traditional 'Sevillanas' dance of Andalucia. The biggest caseta is the 'Caseta de la Fecac' which is the organiser's caseta and where you can find a series of free concerts and shows starring top Spanish singers and performers. 



Feria de April Barcelona

 
Everyone joins in the Sevillanas dancing at the Barcelona Feria de Abril - from the youngest of grandchildren to the eldest of grandparents and the atmosphere is just fantastic. Many of the dancers wear traditional costumes specially made for the feria, which adds colour and festivity to the occasion. The men wear the traditional 'traje de corto' (short jacket, tight trousers and boots) and the ladies wear "faralaes" or "trajes de flamenco" which is a flamenco style dress.  For sustenance between dances Spanish families gather at long tables and enjoy an abundance of Jerez sherry, manzanilla wine and tapas. Another highlight of La Feria de Abril de Catalunya events are the free concerts with famous Spanish singers and bands at the Fecac organisers caseta.
