10th Barcelona Modernista Fair in Barcelona - from 30 May to 1 June 2014
Between 30 May and 1 June 2014, Cor Eixample (Trade and Professional Association for the Right Side of the Eixample) and Barcelona City Council are holding the 10th Barcelona Modernista Fair. The Fair is part of the activities of the Right Side of the Eixample’s local festival and this year celebrates its tenth edition.
As in past years, the event will be held in Carrer Girona, between Avinguda Diagonal and Carrer València, with various activities also taking place on the side lanes of Avinguda Diagonal.
There will be heaps of leisure and cultural activities for young people, adults and toddlers, including guided tours, children’s workshops, Modernista puppets, a parade of vintage cars, a vintage train ride, conferences on Modernisme, some spectacular period attractions, a family bike ride (you must be dressed in period costume to participate), street entertainment and many other surprises. Other towns and organisations connected in some way to Modernisme will also be present, as well as a stand offering information and products related to the Barcelona Modernisme Route.
This year the Fair is dedicated to the centenary of the first car with an Elizalde engine, which was built in the Elizalde factory located at Passeig de Sant Joan 149 in Barcelona.
In addition, whoever comes dressed in Art Nouveau period clothes will receive a gift photo of themselves and go into the draw for some handmade products and other prizes.
