The aim of the festival is to promote the city’s connections to the sea and its rich and varied maritime heritage. To celebrate this event, Barcelona’s port will see the arrival of lots of traditional vessels and large sailing boats who will be doing a layover in the city.

There you’ll find a variety of family-oriented activities, demonstrations of maritime trades and traditions, performances, concerts, and even a gastronomic section where you can try some of the delicious dishes associated with the sea.

It promises to be a participatory event designed for citizens of all ages, and of special interest to families.
