Visitors can enjoy papier-mache giants and big heads - called gegants and capgrossos - on various events including the opening parade and at the giants ball. There are also a chance to see festive and impressive Catalan traditions like the correfoc firerun which usually starts at Plaça Osca on Saturday at 8pm for children and 10pm for aducts and there is usually a human castle building event at Plaça Bonet i Muixí on Saturday at 6pm

Sporting highlights of the Sants Festa Major are the bike race Cursa Ciclista 'Memorial Antoni Andrés Sancho and the 2k run (2 circuits of 1000 metres) called '2000 de Sants - Cursa atlètica de la Festa Major.' Both the bike race and the run are usually on the last Sunday of the festival.
