Grand Alegria - Spain

International Festival Of Dance And Songs “GRAND ALEGRIA”

Calella is well known for its festivals, with focus on Family Holidays, and no matter what time of year you come there should be something happening. There is a fantastic Renaissance Fair, International folklore days, Sardana dancing, Traditional goods and handicrafts fairs.

Long and lovely, the coastline of Calella has been attracting visitors for over 50 years. These days this town is pretty cosmopolitan, holding special days in honour of its foreign residents and visitors. Calella is somewhere to consider if you want bustling nightlife, golden beaches that go on for 3km, and a place that has been given the honour of being a Catalan Family Holiday Destination.

In the landscape it’s the lighthouse that dominates, standing around 50 metres in height on a green premontory. Throughout the town you’ll find a blend of old and new, and if like me you gravitate towards the historic, it’ll be the old quarter that will appeal to you. Calella and it’s more modern side, has plenty to offer those who like to shop and enjoy the good things in life.

The International Folk Festival “Grand Alegria” is a non-competitive sample of traditional dances performed by folklore groups and modern dance groups. If you are a group or an individual you can simply enjoy in the performances and meet the diversity of cultures. If you are a folklore group you can join us and present the traditions of your culture.
