La Fira de la Candelera is one of the most traditional festivals of Molins de Rei and one of the greatest exponents of industrial culture in the province of Barcelona. This festival has been a national holiday since the mid-nineteenth century, coinciding with the spectacular development of the factories in the region. With the passage of time, the festival has been losing the essentially economic character that it had in its origins to open itself to the most varied cultural expressions. Of course, the fair is still a great showcase and the Engel & Völkers Barcelona team will be present again in this edition.
The 168th edition of the Fira de la Candelera will be held between Friday 1st and Sunday 3rd February. Declared a Traditional Festival of National Interest by the Generalitat of Catalonia, the fair presents an immense and varied range of activities. On the one hand, the regional gastronomy will be highly present in the different street stalls, offering visitors some of the most notable products of Catalan cuisine. In fact, this aspect has been one of the most boosted in recent years, taking advantage of the massive interest that the fair has received year after year.
Other sections that have more roots at the fair will be those dealing with automobiles, industry, agricultural machinery, plants, and the always attractive wine sector. There will also be ample space to disseminate the different samples of the arts and culture of Molins de Rei, Baix Llobregat and the rest of the province of Barcelona. An itinerary of events has been put together in which the visitor can experience all kinds of sensations, while discovering the different lines of products and services present at the stands.
According to the latest data published by the organisors of the event, the Fira de la Candelera will attract no less than 300,000 visitors throughout the weekend. The opening to new spheres of the regional economy has allowed to increase the number of visitors who will be coming to the fair, with a growing number of families who will also show interest. These are specifically directed to a good part of the more than 4,000 square metres dedicated to the business exhibition. The participation of more than 900 different exhibitors, including the Engel & Völkers Barcelona team will also be expected.
The Engel & Völkers Barcelona team encourages you to visit its stand number 61 (on the Terraplé parade) along the Fira de la Candelera. The team of real estate agents who work for the German company will help answer all your queries regarding purchasing or selling a property.
