  • Saló Internacional del Còmic (International Comic Fair)

    Saló Internacional del Còmic (International Comic Fair)

    Pow! Zap! Comic book lovers rejoice. It's time once more for Barcelona's celebration of anything and everything to do with graphic novels. This year marking its 35th anniversary, the International Comic Fair has become an unmissable event for fans of the likes of Captain America, Tintin and Doraemon. It's an all-encompassing festival that includes guest authors and illustrators from Spain and around the world, workshops, exhibitions, stands selling memorabilia as well as hundreds of books new and old, awards, video games and activities for kids. But where the real atmosphere comes from is the costumes that many of the attendees dress up in. From Princess Leia to the Joker, Super Mario and Klingons, they create a colourful, amiable and lively universe where an addiction to comic books is the uniting force. From November 2-5, Ficomic also organises the Saló del Manga (Manga Fair), which features manga and anime authors, as well as a range of other activities.

    "An unmissable date for comic fans. Authors and illustrators from around the world, workshops, exhibitions and lots more activities. I really enjoyed it."

  • Festival of La Mercè

    Festival of La Mercè

    Barcelona celebrates the end of summer with a city festival to honour one of its patron saints, La Mercè, whose feast day is September 24. It's a huge party with many free activities for all ages that take place across the city.
    Among the most popular are the procession of 'giants' and 'big heads', elaborate papier-mâché constructions that represent both historical characters and fantastical beasts, the display of castellers ('human towers') in front of City Hall, and the correfoc, which literally means 'fire run' and sees demons with firecrackers dancing with well-protected members of the public under their showers of sparks.
    There are also concerts, audiovisual shows and contributions from a guest city, this year Reykjavík.
    Featuring at BAM this year are performances by the bands Reykjavíkurdætur, Grísalappalísa and Samarios. There is also the piano music of Kiasmos, the young singer Glowie and several other artists including Emmsjé Gauti, JFDR and Ólöf Arnalds.
    Ciutadella Park hosts numerous events including theatre and dance shows.
    At night, fireworks fill the sky with fabulous pyrotechnic displays befitting such an important fixture on the Barcelona calendar.

    "The city pulls out all the stops to celebrate the festival dedicated to one of its patron saints. Hundreds of free activities all over the city blending tradition and the latest trends. You'll be able to see gegants and capgrossos as well as concerts by the latest big names."

  • Fira de la Mediterrània

    Fira de la Mediterrània

    Located in the heart of Catalonia, the historical town of Manresa hosts this yearly festival dedicated to local culture and global music. For industry professionals, it's promoted as a 'market of performances', which for the general public means it's a great opportunity to discover visual arts, circus, dance, art, music, narration and theatre that combine tradition with contemporary creativity, and that can be difficult to find in a single event such as this. The programme is understandably packed, with acts running both during the day and at night, and with both street performances and shows in various local venues. So you might one moment see a display of hip hop and the next a concert by a Congolese band, followed by a new take on acrobatics and then a sword dance. All of which is interspersed with some of the most classic elements of Catalan culture such as 'human towers' (castells), 'fire runs' (correfocs) and 'giants' (gegants).

    "You'll be hard pushed to find another festival like this one. Visual arts, circus performances, dance, art, storytelling and theatre are combined with classic elements of Catalan culture including castells, correfocs and gegants."
