2018 Edition (23-30/06/2018)
The 10-year anniversary of Pride Barcelona, the Med's largest gay pride event, takes place from June 23 to 30. The city will be filled with music, workshops, dance, sports, live shows, exhibits, the biggest foam party in Europe, galas and more; and based on the success of past editions, it's likely that over 200,000 participants will join in with the fun and festivities that always have a serious message behind them.
Among the programme's highlights are: the reading of this year's LGBTI manifest, which sets out the aim and focus of Pride (Jun 23, 7pm, Plaça Universitat); varied activities for all at the Village and Main Stage (Jun 29-30, Avinguda Maria Cristina); and, of course, the fabulous Parade, including a pre-party and closing celebrations (Jun 30, start: Avinguda Paral·lel).
This is the main architectural event in Barcelona, a weekend in October where over 200 buildings of every shape and size open their doors to the general public. It is an initiative of the 48h Open House Barcelona association, which began in London in 1992. From then on, the concept of an 'Open House' has been implemented around the world: New York, Dublin, Galway, Tel Aviv and, since 2010, Barcelona, have their own week dedicated to local architecture. 'Open House' offers the opportunity to understand and experience architecture in a unique way, through an architectonic experience.
The program invites everyone to explore and understand the value of a well-constructed and designed space. In the last few years, this event in Barcelona has expanded to include cities and villages from the metropolitan area and the Maresme Coast, and on the roster of buildings to visit we will come across churches, schools, sports centers, apartment blocks, libraries and restaurants.

As running becomes increasingly popular with millions of people around the world, the numbers coming to take part in Barcelona's marathon grows each year. It's now the fourth largest marathon in Europe after Berlin, London and Paris, with over 17,000 people signing up. Doubtless part of the appeal is the idea of running a 42.2km route around one of the continent's most aesthetically pleasing cities. The number of globally recognised landmarks passed by participants, such as the Sagrada Família and Camp Nou, as well as noteworthy vistas including the seafront, historic port and Ciutadella Park, make this a one-of-a-kind sporting event.
But that's not all. The Barcelona marathon is much more, with entertainment for the crowds that includes concerts, traditional Catalan culture and different local drumming groups, a four-kilometre Breakfast Run the day before the race, a Kids Race, and Expo Sports, a fair focused on outdoor sports that has numerous stands from major sporting companies.

Each year, this festival gains in reputation as the greatest contemporary dance music extravaganza, with line-ups that bring together the very best Spanish and international DJs. This year you will be able to enjoy with Alesso, Armin van Buuren, David Guetta, Steve Aoki, an much more.
This sporting event with three disciplines is undoubtedly on the rise; it currently forms part of the Olympic and Paralympic games, and athletes such as the British Brownlee brothers have increased the audience for this challenge combining swimming, cycling and running. It is also becoming a trend among amateurs who are looking for a more varied exercise that provides more than just one single sport. It is no surprise that the Barcelona Triathlon attracts thousands of people to its waterfront every year.
With three distances available, participants can choose between supersprint, sprint and olympic, taking part as individuals, in couples (both should finish the race together) or as a relay team (with two of more members sharing the effort). Apart from the sporting activity itself, Triexpo is held the day before the competition, a place where we can find the latest in trends and accessories and it is an ideal venue for getting a new triathlon kit or to meet other people taking part.
With globalization it seems that every shopping street of every city appears to be the same. Although the general appearance of all cities’ shopfronts have moved towards unification, Barcelona still manages to preserve a healthy number of authentic stores. These are unique businesses, some because they are over a hundred years old, some because their workshops still depend on creators using artisanal methods, some because they supply local gourmet products and some because they are at the cutting edge of design. The best way of seeing them all and to enjoy a truly fascinating visit is by taking the Barcelona Genuine Shops Tour, a guided route that takes in the city’s most inspirational stores designed to be enjoyed using all five senses. Don't miss it!
