April Fair of Catalonia
Every year, the Federation of Andalusian Cultural Organisations in Catalonia (FECAC) organises a popular festival which is almost on a par with the ones held in the south of Spain at the same time. The April Fair of Catalonia has around fifty traditional stalls that are mainly dedicated to leisure, dancing and food. People dance sevillanas, wear traditional clothes and consume typical drinks, such as rebujito.
The Catalan version of the fair began in 1971. At that time, associations of Andalusian immigrants living in Barcelona and their respective descendants, began their own fair in Castelldefels, with only four casetas [stalls]. The Barcelona fair has grown year after year, becoming established as the second biggest fair in Spain in the Andalusian social and cultural sector, only coming behind the one in Seville.
According to the organisers, in 2013 over 1.5 million people visited the fair.
