Cascada Stage

71st Sardana Dance Group Competition (Barcelona; traditional dance; for all ages).

In the 1950s, the emphasis was on the artistic and popular nature of Barcelona's big annual festival, and new contributions to the city's celebrations included the creation of a Sardana Dance Group Competition, which has now become one of the most traditional La Mercè events. So much so, that the 71st edition of the competition requires victory two years in a row or three alternate years in order to win the big prize: a bronze statue of the City Giant. However, a group that wins a single edition carries off a statue of the City Eagle. This year, the competition, which is normally held in Avinguda de la Catedral, has been moved to a special location in Parc de la Ciutadella. Music for the event will be provided by the Cobla Sant Jordi Ciutat de Barcelona.
