Port Olímpic, a new city space

With the America's Cup, Port Olímpic has been reborn as a new, totally renovated city space. This year, it is making its debut as a La Mercè stage, with family daytime shows, so that city residents can discover this newly transformed location. The women's and young people's regattas will also be accompanied by cultural activities.

Gastronomy, Commerce and Markets

Tast de la Rambla 2024 offers a range of dishes from the twelve countries taking part in the 37th Louis Vuitton America’s Cup. There will also be culinary, commerce and craft festivals and areas in the Born and Barceloneta neighbourhoods, the creation of a cocktail, a special edition of the Poblenou Wine Festival and seafood tastings in city markets.

Sports and education

In a key year for sailing and nautical activity, the America’s Cup becomes sports and training opportunities. Barcelona wants the passion for water sports and the seas to reach everybody, with programmes such as “Viu la vela” to foster sailing among children in the city. At the same time, numerous training initiatives are promoting the nautical sector and the blue economy for a professional career.

Experience Barceloneta, experience Ciutat Vella

Ciutat Vella and Barceloneta are the operational centre of the Louis Vuitton 37th America’s Cup. Barcelona’s maritime neighbourhood, the city’s fishing neighbourhood, brings the power of its history to the Cultural Regatta, along with its traditions, vitality and community fabric.
