Where: Plaça de Catalunya

When: from 20 to 31 December 2019

From 20 to 31 December, the heart of the city was transformed into an oasis of light and creativity: a forest, giant rabbits, Christmas carols, storytelling, sports, games and many more fun, free activities awaited visitors of all ages.

What could be more magical than Christmas? This is the time of year when the city emerges from the darkness to be filled with light; when homes, coats and scarves provide more warmth than ever; when hugs and kisses abound and when, one morning, we find all our hopes and dreams have appeared under the tree in the form of toys.

This year, a magical forest grew in the heart of the city, where enchanting creatures lived: enormous inflatable rabbits filled with light, that acted as both show and stage. There, a small orchestra played Christmas carols from around the world and we could listen to stories, fables, poems and couplets and marvel at a performance by a family of eccentric, magical characters: the toy inventor, the gift wrapper, the food taster, the Christmas log trainer, the welcomer and the tree planter. What’s more, creativity was present in the form of wooden toys, bicycles and sports activities.

What's more, this year Plaça de Catalunya once again hosted the Responsible Consumption and Social and Solidarity Economy Fair from 20 to 31 December, where visitors were able to find out how to buy and consume sustainably and fairly throughout the year all over the city.
