Cartell Festa Major de Sants 2013Festa Major de Sants 2013. The Sants Festival in Barcelona in Sants neighbourhood of Barcelona overlaps with another popular neighbourhood festival, the Festa Major de Gracia Although not quite as famous as Gracia festival,  the "Festa Major de Sants" is worth a visit.  Many of the main activities take place in "Parc de l'Espanya Industrial" and in 2013 16 streets in Sants will be decorated by the residents in colourful themes.

There are many chances to see Catalan traditions like the correfoc fireruns for children and for adults. The Diada Castellera human tower day of the Festa Major de Sants is at Parc de l'Espanya Industrial and you can see giants and big heads called gegants and capgrossos on various occasions including the opening parade at 18.30 on 23/8 - and at the giants ball. 

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. 

The Sants neighbourhood festival finishes with a fireworks and music display.
