Festival of the Dreta de l'Eixample and Modernist Fair

Local fiestas

The Festa Major in the Dreta de L'Eixample quarter of Barcelona is imbued with modernism, and it could not be otherwise: modernism is a characteristic feature of the architecture of the area. One of the most popular activities of this Festival is the Modernist Fair, which this year celebrates its fifteenth edition. This fair is already an outstanding activity in Barcelona and every year it has more visitors.

As in the majority of main quarter festivals, they organize a parade with giants dance, big heads, popular meals, sports competitions, children's workshops, concerts and dances, exhibitions, theater and cinema; all this, with the participation of entities, musical groups and other organizations of the district. The Festa Major in the neighborhood of La Dreta de L'Eixample has been organized since 2004.

The fair takes place in the upper part of Girona street and in it you can find objects, gastronomic products, dresses, music and decorative elements of modernist time. The specific program of the fair also includes demonstrations of ancient crafts, car shows, children's games and guided tours, among other proposals. This year the Modernist Fair is dedicated to the architect Josep Maria Jujol.
