Every August, Gràcia holds an 8-day festival “Festa Major”, known as Festes de Gràcia and is one of the largest festivals in Barcelona.
Lonely Planet describes Gracia Festival as
‘…veritable explosion of creativity. One second you’re being jostled by a gang of ravers, the next you’re gawping at a two-storey-high papier-mâché model of Alice in Wonderland. Think Glastonbury played by your brother’s band, and you won’t be far off.’
