Barcelona is such a modern and cosmopolitan city that it offers lots of leisurely activities throughout the year. Contrary to what many think, November is a month full of events and activities for both on weekdays and weekends. Here we will show you the most interesting ones to organise your schedule around so you don't miss out on any of them.
Although the actual date of the 48th edition of the International Jazz Festival of Barcelona Voll Damm is on 24th October, most of the concerts are held during the month of November. More than 130 shows are scheduled for the penultimate month of the year. The scenarios that take place are very diverse as some of them are even performed on the streets. The price of tickets varies depending on the concert.
This is one of the most typical celebrations in Barcelona and generally the rest of Catalonia. The official day for the celebration is on November 1st, while it is true that some take the opportunity to celebrate it from the day before. However, if you like to celebrate Halloween night, you can get up the next day and go down the street with your friends or family to enjoy some chestnuts, yams, and fruit candies or 'panellets'.

The 22nd edition of the Salón del Manga de Barcelona will be held at Fira Barcelona, where you can enjoy the latest world of comics and Japanese animation. So if you are a fan of this genre, you will have an opportunity to enjoy comics like never before. Tickets tend to sell out quickly so it is best to think ahead and book yours in advance.
Although there are still a few weeks left to Christmas, if you want to start getting into the festive period, a great idea would be to go to Plaza de Catalunya and spend some time ice skating there. Every year, the City of Barcelona sets up an artificial ice rink much to the delight of adults and children. This is no doubt an excellent activity for the whole family to take part in.
To conclude, these are only four activities that can be enjoyed during the month of November in Barcelona. As you can see, Barcelona goes out of its way to offer the best entertainment during November.
