Even though it’s a borrowed tradition from overseas, Halloween in Barcelona keeps growing in popularity every year. This is how Barcelona celebrates Halloween.
Halloween’s celebrations in Barcelona are blended with the original catalan holiday of Tot Sants (All Saints), which takes place on November 1st, and given that Halloween is not as hyped as in the US, this holiday has different shades and a flavor of its own, compared to the Halloween celebrations in other countries.
Despite being associated with a children’s holiday, Halloween in Barcelona is very popular among adults too, but either way, trick or treating is not a usual habit. Instead, lavish costume parties for grown ups take the town by storm throughout the city’s bars and clubs.
One thing you can’t miss about the Halloween/All Saints in Barcelona is “La Castanyada”, a popular tradition from Catalonia that commemorates the dead each November 1st, by having a meal including chestnuts, sweet potatoes and panellets (small cakes made of marzipan and covered with nuts).
Enjoy a comfortable private transfer from/to the Airport in Barcelona – Book well in advance to guarantee the service of your transfer.
Since late october, the presence of street vendors selling roasted chestnuts wrapped in newspaper is common in Barcelona. Along with these delicacies, several events like music concerts and choral ensembles.
One popular way of celebrating Halloween in Barcelona is heading to Port Aventura, a large amusement park located 110 Km (68 miles) away from Barcelona. It offers a special horror weekend and shows with ghosts, zombies, monsters and pumpkins of course.
Other big parties in Barcelona for Halloween are those in Razzmatazz with the Razzlloween Night on october 31st. CDLC Club will host the “Fear of the Night” Halloween party, as well as Sutton Club, that will held the #WILD Halloween Costume Ball on wednesday Oct. 29th. Opium Mar, Shoko Club, Sala Apolo and Monasterio will also host Halloween themed parties.
For a different Halloween celebration, head to the Moll de les Drassanes on the night of the 31st (right next to Las Golondrinas dock) and go on board a catamaran with your costume on, for a three hour Halloween Boat Party with music and drinks.
