Festivalet has been bringing art and design to Barcelona since Christmas 2009 when it started with just 8 stands. The first year was so successful that they haven’t stopped celebrating this design fair since then. At each Christmas fair, Festivalet becomes a magnet for those seeking unique and authentic gifts.

Independent Design and Craftsmanship Since 2009

Over the years, Festivalet has experienced various locations, each bringing its own charm to the experience. Currently, the fair takes place in the former Fabra i Coats factory, in the picturesque Sant Andreu neighborhood. This industrial space transforms into a vibrant enclave where independent creators bring their works to life, and visitors find inspiration at every corner.

At this Christmas market, you’ll discover different brands and small businesses with highly original products, all handmade or crafted with great care. It’s a fantastic opportunity for artisans to connect with the wider audience in Barcelona. You’re sure to find a different and unique Christmas gift.

The magical venue hosting Festivalet is Fabra i Coats, located in the Sant Andreu neighborhood of Barcelona.
