Poblenou, a typically laid-back, tranquil neighborhood of Barcelona, becomes energized during the Festa Major del Poblenou. Over 40 organizations and 13 street festival committees have completed their proposed activities for the festival. The Colles Castelleres are ready to amaze the public with the strength, balance and courage that goes into building their human towers. It's time once again to party in the streets of this frequently overlooked area.
The festival coincides with the opening of the Now Poblenou exhibition at the Can Felipa Civic Center. The Now Poblenou project is about the transition of the neighborhood through the eyes and words of its citizens.
Come discover the soul of Poblenou, witness its changing complexities, create your own opinion of its identity, and have a good time at the Festa Major del Poblenou. The festival's opening party on the 12th is 8pm to 8:45pm. No tickets necessary.
