The festival of the Gràcia district is one of the most celebrated festivals during August in Barcelona. It is a popular festival that lasts for several days, with a wide range of activities, such as concerts, workshops and shows. The highlight of the festival is the traditional competition when streets are decorated and compete to achieve first place. This year, the Gràcia festival will be even more memorable, as it is celebrating the bicentenary of the first festival that was held in the district.

The whole of Barcelona is enthusiastically organizing over 400 cultural activities and festivities for all ages. The focal point of this celebration is located in a marquee in the Jardinets de Gràcia, where information is available on exhibitions, conferences, workshops and shows, designed by around seventy associations of Gràciia.
