A highlight of late summer within reach of Barcelona is without doubt the Festa Major de Sant Quirze del Vallès, which in 2016 is celebrated between Thursday 1st and Monday 5th September.
If you're in Barcelona, Sant Quirze is easy to get to as it has a stop of the Ferrocarrils de La Generalitat line to Sabadell and if you're anywhere else in Barcelona Province, the Vallès town is easily reached by car.
The long festival weekends kicks off on Thursday and most of the big events take place over the weekend, when there are sports events, popular meals, traditional dances and much more so there's something for all the family.
The big procession or Cercavila is on Friday and features Gegants and Capgrossos and other typical Catalan figures.
You can consult the Full Programme on the Official Festa Major website.
