October is the month of autumn, it's time to say goodbye to the heat and welcome warmer temperatures and shorter days. Book your accommodation in Factory Hostels Barcelona and enjoy a perfect time to travel for the good weather and the least agglomeration of tourists. The city of Barcelona offers in the months leading up to Christmas a multitude of activities and leisure proposals for citizens and visitors. Today we tell you some of them:
- In October, many neighborhoods of the city celebrate their popular festivals such as Sarrià, the Eixample Esquerre or Les Corts. The streets are filled with music, traditions, fire and dancing.
- A new edition of the German beer festival arrives this month in Barcelona. It is the traditional Oktoberfest held at the Fira de Montjuïc with the best beer and typical German cuisine.
- If you are looking for musical proposals, October offers many options such as the Primavera Club that hosts concerts of emerging bands and indie groups in different venues in the city. There is also a new edition of the Voll-Damm Barcelona Jazz Festival, one of the biggest jazz festivals in the world.
- In October, the Sitges Film Festival also takes place. A date for lovers of fantasy and horror movies. You can also participate in the classic Zombie Walk and characterize yourself as a living dead through the streets of Sitges.
- Another important event this month is the Barcelona Triathlon that will take place next Sunday, the 7th, on the beaches of the city.
- We also want to highlight a new edition of the Mercat de Mercats gastronomic fair held on the third weekend of October with a multitude of gastronomic activities, show-cookings and cooking classes or cocktails by the best chefs in the area.
- Although Halloween is not a Catalan tradition, every year there are more places to celebrate this terrifying night. Private parties in clubs and hours of fear and fun in some theme parks of the province such as Port Aventura, which organizes very special days for lovers of terror.
