Feria de Abril (April Fair) in Barcelona 2012
As every year, Hotel Curious gets you closer the the wonderful Feria de Abril in Barcelona, and in 2012 the dates chosen are: from Friday April 27 to Sunday May 6. A whole week of dance, music and good food! As everyone knows, la Feria de Abril is the perfect excuse to spend some stunning Andalucian Holidays/Fiesta. In Barcelona, as in Seville (where the show was originated), it is celebrated with much passion, as the Andalusian population of Barcelona is huge. An amusement park, hundreds of stands, stages, bars, tapas of good quality, paella, flamenco shows and good music will meet in the Parc del Forum from Friday April 27 and for a week long. Dancers and musicians will have the highest level in these flamenco shows. Take a look at this year's poster, presented on April 11, a nod to the exchange of symbols and origins. This celebration is a symbol of unity between cultures and has weighed out in Barcelona for almost thirty years (it was in 1983 when it was inaugurated by the Federation of Andalusian Cultural in Catalonia). If you've never been to la Feria de Abril, this year it will be more spectacular than ever. This is even the first time that “sevillanas” will be sung in Catalan, according to Francisco Garcia Prieto (President of the Federation of Andalusian in Catalonia). For more information, please read the interview that elPeriódico published last April 22 (spanish version). We recommend you to buy a lark, a comb, a nice ruffled dress and... dance!
