Ain't no party like street party
One of the benefits of living in Barcelona is definitely all the street festivals you will encounter during the summertime. One of our all time favorite street festival is the Gracia Street Festival in Barcelona, Spain. If you are in Barcelona in August make sure not to miss it!
The Gràcia Festival, Les Festes de Gràcia (in Catalan) or Las Fiestas de Gràcia (in Castellano), is one of the most popular street festivals and events among locals and tourists in Barcelona.
The Gracia Festival is a mix of both old and new Catalan traditions and culture. It contains all the great ingredients for it to be a must visit during the August periode in Barcelona, and when we say all the ingredients we mean ALL THE INGREDIENTS. We are talking about colorful streets, good food, great drinks, amazing vibes, happy people, emotional concerts, traditional dance, popping music and unique decorations!
