"INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL “GRAND ALEGRIA” Calella Folk Festival 22/6-03/7/2023
The International Folk Festival “Grand Alegria” is a non-competitive sample of traditional dances performed by folklore groups. At the festival may participate in children and youth folklore dance groups, modern dance groups, choirs, as well as groups and performers from other art styles.
Dance and music go hand in hand to express the identity of a people. Their cultural legacy is transmitted over the years through popular dances and the accompanying melodies, which are the most vivid example of a country. From South Africa to Western Asia, passing through Europe and South America, all peoples show their identity through their traditional dances, and each year they have a meeting point in Calella with the International Festival of Folklore and Music Bands.
SANT JOAN FESTIVAL
Since ancient times, we welcome the summer solstice with celebrations of fire. We light bonfires the shortest night of the year in honour of the sun and to ward off evil spirits, and it is common to get rid of old furniture and unwanted items as a symbol of life renovation and purification. Saint John's Eve is a magical night where the city dresses in its best to celebrate the official beginning of summer, with fireworks, sparklers and dancing until sunrise.
The NEC is a consolidated festival of Calella summer nights. The warm days invite you to enjoy the nights, when the sun goes down and the Mediterranean breeze cools the streets. This is when the smell and sound of the sea invades the city. In Calella we are very sensitive to this feeling and love enjoying together. We fill the terraces and the promenade seems like a parade. In summer, when the holidays allow us to stay up till late and be lazy in the morning is when music and shows conquer the city.
