Some people assume that once La Mercè festival comes to an end, there won't be any more celebrations in Barcelona for a long time to come. But this couldn't be further from the truth. Events in Barcelona are never ending and October will be the perfect opportunity to discover the most varied activities. Here are some of the biggest events that you can attend during this month.
Chronologically speaking, the first event will be the prestigious Barcelona Tattoo Expo, which will open its doors on September 30th and runs until October 2nd. The chosen venue is at pabellón 8 de la Feria de Barcelona. In its corridors and 'stands', you can learn more about the interesting history of technical and stylistic innovations as well as check out the exhibitions and attend conferences on the world of tattoos. This is undoubtedly a good opportunity to discover the fascinating world of tattoos.
Along with the more urban and international artistic events, October will be a good month for you to discover the history and local traditions. On different days of the month, the Coordinator of Peñas de Gigantes and Bestiario de Ciutat Vella will take this folkloric show to the streets. The event, La Casa de los Entremeses, will be held in Plaza de las Beatas, at the northern part of Gótico district. Giants, big heads, and all kinds of beasts are the protagonists of performances that will entertain the whole family.
Motor racing fans who are interested in the history of motorcycles will definitely appreciate the full bike show: society, industry and competition, which will all be hosted, as expected, by Museo de la Moto (the Motorcycle Museum) in de la Paja Street. The assembly includes photographs, videos, artistic images and, of course, a remarkable series of bikes from all eras. The aim of this show is to introduce the viewer to the world of the automotive industry and to value the importance of motorcycle sports in society.
Finally, we could list many other activities such as concerts or the annual Deep-Sky presentation at the Planetarium. But we recommend el Salón del Manga Fair the most. Between 29th October and November 1st, Barcelona will be the world capital of manga, attracting fans of all ages and from all corners of the planet. The event is characterised by its thematic heterogeneity, with exhibitions and activities to suit all tastes in Feria de Barcelona.
