Summer is over, but you can still enjoy Barcelona’s amazing weather. If you think there aren’t so many things to do in October in this magical city, you are mistaken. I have for you a list of upcoming events in Barcelona.
Oktoberfest in Barcelona! Are you surprised? You shouldn’t be, it’s the eighth edition that is organized in this magic city. If you are a beer lover, you must go to the Octoberfest and try some special beers, like the Paulaner, which was made especially for the original Oktoberfest in Munich. I can guarantee you that you won’t be hungry during the festival, as you will find some typical German dishes like sausages, pretzels or pork knuckles.
On the 3d of October at 18:30, there will be an opening ceremony with live music, contests, and the traditional Bavarian costumes. Please be advised that it is a free party so it can be very crowded!
When: 03.10-13.10 Where: Square del Univers de Fira de Barcelona.
Free Friday Night in Egyptian Museum of Barcelona
The Egyptian Museum of Barcelona launches the second edition of Free Friday Night. The doors will be opened from 7 pm until 12 pm. You will be able to admire two permanent collections formed by more than 1,200 pieces as well as the exhibition ‘Tutankhamun, history of a discovery’. During the day, more activities are scheduled for visitors, such as workshops in hieroglyphic and mummification.
When: 04.10 Where: Museo Egipto Barcelona
Festival the Rosary
Since 1962, the festival the Rosary is celebrated in Barcelona, or more exactly on the Rambla and its close surroundings. This festival is organized in favor of “la Mare de Deu del Roser” (Our Lady of Rosary), the saint patron of the street. During the festival, La Rambla is beautifully decorated with flowers, with the statue of Colon, Palau Vireina or Palau Moja being particularly stunningly adorned.
When: 05.10-7.10.2019 Where: La Rambla
Mercats mercat means in English ‘Market of Markets’. This event is organized by the City Hall, and this year will mark its 10th edition. You will be able to assist to presentations, sessions of live cooking, cocktail-making workshops, wine tastings and much more held by the stallholders of the municipal markets and professionals of the gastronomic sector.
When: 18.10-20.10 Where: Aveniguida de Cathedral
La Monumental Club
Monumental Club is one of my favorite activities in October. La Monumental Club is a fair for people of all ages. During the two days of fair, you can enjoy family activities such as Big Mini’s music workshops and self-portraits. You will find a market with new and second-hand clothes and vintage items. In case you are hungry, there is plenty of food trucks, meaning when you can have a drink as the scheduled DJs are playing live. If I still didn’t convince you, be advised that this event is organized in a beautiful old stadium used for bullfighting.
When: 05.10 Where: Plaza de Toros Monumental de Barcelona
