Summer continues in Barcelona, and throughout it, the different festivals of the city still exist, as well as its most important neighbourhood fiestas. Today we will talk about The Mayor Fiesta in the Poblenou neighbourhood, celebrated in the “beginning” of the end of summer when the weather is still good, but the nights begin to be a little cooler.
The Poblenou is located in the district of Sant Martí. At the end of the 19th century, it was the territory with the most industrial concentration in the country. With the Olympic Games began the great transformation of the neighbourhood, which today takes a new momentum with the 22@ project. It is now a business and real estate area next to the coast.

This is a street Fiesta with traditions present at all times. There are many activities focused on maintaining and promoting popular culture, such as parades, the dawn, the meeting of giants or the correfoc, among others; but not everything is a party, also during these days sports activities, musical performances, dances and other artistic events are also organized.
