This is my personal list of annual events I would like to see (again).
They are not all that near but most are reachable by car or train.
As there is always many event’s on in and around here – be sure to check:
|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.|
