The Llum BCN Festival, the activities of Santa Eulàlia and the Arribo del Carnestoltes, suspended

Due to the health situation, these events scheduled for February will not be able to take place in the usual way.

The Institut de Cultura de Barcelona, ​​following the recommendations of the health and civil protection authorities, has decided to suspend the cultural events linked to the popular festive cycle that take place on the streets scheduled for this February.

In this sense, the Llum BCN festival, scheduled for February 4 to 6, postpones the activity until the autumn of this year, once the health situation has stabilised.

The face-to-face activities for Santa Eulàlia are cancelled with the exception of five exhibitions, which can be visited in accordance with all the health measures recommended by the authorities.

The Born CCM maintains the three exhibitions that show children’s traditional beasts from Barcelona, ​​the historical festive beasts that will also commemorate the 700th anniversary of Corpus Christi in the city, and the photographic exhibition that will revolve around flower carpets. In the Pati Manning, you can visit the exhibition of giants and the traditional exhibition of the ‘Gegantes Laies’ in the City Hall. The museums also keep the traditional open day during the day of Santa Eulàlia. On February 12, you can follow the Floral Offering and the Placement of the Penón de Santa Eulàlia through cultura popular networks. In addition, the day will be used to remember traditional events of previous years, also online.

As for the Arribo del Carnaval, all face-to-face events are also cancelled. However, Their Majesties Kings Belluga and Tòtil Tocatdelala will have virtual presence on Maundy Thursday on cultura popular networks.
