The Festival Raval (s) invites you to discover the cultural wealth of this district of Barcelona.
This year’s Festival Raval (s), from November 10th to the 13th, will fill again the streets with of all kinds of activities for all ages: Music, theater, cuisine, cinema, fairs, tours, workshops, and street performances. You have a lot to choose from! All this and more can be found in the 9th edition of the Festival of Culture Raval, better known as the Festival Raval (s).
Also this year, the festival is organized by it’s neighbors together with several organizations. They’ll fill the neighborhood with its rich culture and have all sorts of activities in every corner of the Raval, from the Ramblas, to their theaters and museums.
The Culture Street
Actions bastoners, Bollywood dancing, magic, capoeira, dance, and all kinds of music can be found around the streets of San Ramon and the Rambla del Raval. Alsio the Children’s Workshop will be organized there.
Theater and food
Theatre is one of the highlights of this years edition. You will be albe to see the performances of groups as The Tantarantana, the Llantiol, the Theatre of El Raval, the Condal, The Villarroel, Goya and the Romea. The programming can be found on the website of the festival.
We do miss the food side of El Raval (s) in this year’s edition, although they introduced the initiative “EnTAPA’t Raval”. With this you can enjoy drinks and tapas for three euros at various places in the neighborhood while listening to live music. Not a bad idea, isn’t it?
If you do not know the neighborhood, I suggest you participate in any of the activities with which it runs, such as Gymkhana Raval, or visit any of the organized exhibitions, such as “Photographic Memory of the Raval“. You can also join one of the routes that will allow you to discover the historic buildings and the neighborhood’s latest changes. Or maybe the Romanesque monastery of St. Paul? Or choose one of the museums into the neighborhood, such as the Maritime, the Royal Shipyards, the MACBA or the CCCB. Too much to see for just a few days…. Enjoy!
