Many tourists arrive in Barcelona expecting to find flamenco dancers and castanets. While there are a few flamenco shows and shops selling ruffled skirts for the tourists, Catalunya has nothing to do with these Spanish stereotypes. Now, for a short time, tourists in Barcelona do not need to travel to southern Spain to experience flamenco. From 23 April to 2 May, La Feria de Abril de Catalunya - a festival celebrating Andalucian culture is happening in Barcelona.

La Feria de Abril de Catalunya is organized by the Federacion de Entidades Culturales Andaluzas en Catalunya and Barcelona's Ajuntament. The 39th year of La Feria de Abril de Catalunya features local music, live performances, traditional food of Andalucía and of course, fabulous flamenco dancing. Entrance to the festival is free, however you must pay for food and drinks or any castanets you may want to buy. La Feria de Abril de Catalunya takes place at the Parc del Forum.
