From August 15th to the 21st the Gràcia district hosts one of the most popular and followed festivities of the city: The Gràcia festivities. The streets and squares of this emblematic neighborhood transform themselves into a carnival of colors, textures, and original art proposals. Besides enjoying the variety of activities that take place both during the day and at night (live concerts, public suppers, kids oriented performances, street theater, parades, etc) we highly recommend allowing yourself to get blown away by just walking through the district´s rumbling streets.
Every year each neighbor association decides the theme of the decoration that will garnish their streets. And every year there is a contest where the best garnished public square, balcony and street are awarded with a special recognition.
