January 7th is the Saints' Day of Sant Ramon de Penyafort, who is a medieval Catalan saint and the patron of many parishes around Catalonia so there are quite a few celebrations in his honour but, as far as I know, no actual festivals.
If you think there's been an oversight or you can provide more historical detail about a particular event, I'd be delighted to hear from you.
