The celebrations of Santa Eulàlia are organized in honor of Santa Eulàlia, copatrona of Barcelona. On February 11, 12 and 13, giant and big heads, eagles, lions, dance groups, devils, dragons and other characters that are part of the festive tradition of Barcelona will parade through the streets and squares of Ciutat Vella. And there will be castellers in the Plaza de Sant Jaume. The popular culture program is broad. To him are added exhibitions such as the exhibition of giants; open days and activities in the Town Hall, museums and cultural centers; and specific activities for children.

This year, due to the restrictions that persist, the Proclamation of the Boys and Girls will be held behind closed doors in the Saló de Cent of the Barcelona City Council and can be followed in streaming. As a novelty, choral singing will be present at the festivities with the youngest voices of the Raval and the veteran Cors de Clavé.

The popular culture program: correfocs, castellers and parades (2022)

The entire arsenal of popular Barcelona imagery goes out to the streets of the old town of Barcelona. Giants, big heads, the Eagle and many other figures. One of the most spectacular manifestations of popular culture are the correfocs; devils who parade dancing in the streets between firecrackers and fireworks, pushed by the noise of the drums. The correfoc will be held on Sunday the 13th and will culminate with a fireworks display that will put an end to the Santa Eulàlia 2022 festivities; the children's version of the correfoc will be held a little earlier on the same day.
