Festa Major de Gràcia 2019 - Gracia Festival. The biggest street festival in Barcelona is the Gracia festival every year in mid August called the Festa Major de Gracia and also often called Fiestas de Gracia.

The Festa Major de Gracia dates are always the 15th August to 21st August. This is a street festival that takes place in the oldest parts of the Gracia district in Barcelona.

24 Gracia streets have been decorated by the residents in 2019. There are hundreds of activities during the festival, many for local residents, but tourists and visitors are more than welcome to the many public concerts and parades.

The Festa de Gracia is about Catalan traditions and you can see wonderful parades, giants, human castle building and correfoc fireruns, but most of all it is a shining example of community spirit which also welcomes visitors. It´s authentic, fun, joyous, colourful festive and worth a visit!
