Three Kings 5 January Kids dream where processions on horseback throw candy in the streets. http://www.bcninternet.com/Whatson/fiestas.htm
Spanish Formula 1 May Within easy reach from Barcelona http://www.circuitcat.com
Sant Joan 23 June Stay away if you hate noisy fireworks. Mostly loud and a few feeble pretty rockets. http://www.bcninternet.com/Whatson/fiestas.htm
Barcelona Harley Days Early July Not really an annual event but was on in 2008; 2010 and 2011. http://www.barcelonaharleydays.com/en/
Festa Major de Gracia 15 August The biggest fiesta major in Barcelona. Last 7 days and around 20 streets are decorated with bands playing every day. http://www.festamajordegracia.cat/
New Year 31 December Spanish new year is more party and less fireworks. Most restaurants and bars will have small parties going. Gracia is great with loads of pleasant people having a good time.
