This Christmas once again sees the city’s shopping associations combine with the City Council’s Directorate for Commerce, Restaurants and Consumption to offer cultural, recreational and artistic activities for everybody to enjoy Christmas in the city.

“Christmas and commerce” invites you to enjoy a wide array of engaging activities designed for people of all ages, with neighbourhood shopkeepers and business owners taking part directly. Are you going to miss out on them? Check out the full programme by district here.

This year offers you the chance to enjoy shows such as El senyor botiguer and La senyora Serafina, which pay homage to the city’s commercial fabric, as well as a visit to Barcelona from the friendly shop explorer, the Explorador de Botigues; the fantasy of an intrepid narrator of Christmas stories who lands in the city; the rhythm of a pair of fidgety luminous robots, the melodies of a duo performing carols from around the globe and more.

Sounds of Christmas

In addition, and in a clear bid to help the Christmas magic reach various places around the city, there’s a music programme offering the finest Christmas jazz in the city’s districts.

Up to 100 small concerts in 50 locations around the city’s 10 districts: balconies, terraces, large windows or other places high up near pedestrian areas and shopping hubs.

These surprise interventions will be a symbolic, surprising and immaterial gift for city pedestrians and traders.

All provided by the best professional musicians belonging to the Associació de Músics de Jazz i Música Moderna de Catalunya in collaboration with Casa Seat.

This Christmas, commerce lights up the neighbourhoods because they’re lights we don’t want to go out!
