Baile dels Garrofins, MoiàPopular festivals
01/19/2019 - 01/20/2019

Records show that this dance, which is only celebrated in Moià, already existed in 1789. Today, this dance is performed by a group of girls and boys, accompanied by the sound of the gralla, a traditional Catalan wind instrument, and by the figure of the "chicken". The dance takes place on the eve of Sant Sebastià at sunset, through the streets and squares of the village, and also on 20th December, the Saint's Day, at the time of the church service.
