La festa major de Sants is one of the biggest traditions in Barcelona. Just when Festas de Gracia ends, Las Festas de Sants begin!
The official day is August 24th which is the third week of August. Usually, the day starts a day before and lasts all week, so if by any chance you cannot make it on the 24th you have a whole other six days to enjoy the festival.
