The 40th Feria de Abril de Catalunya (Catalan April Seville Fair) takes place at the Fòrum from 29 April to 8 May. On Friday 29, human castles from the Minyons de Terrassa and flamenco with the Cadiz-born singer-songwriter, José Anillo, will open and the traditional lighting will go on at 10pm.

The Feria de Abril, which ends on 8 May, will have 70 stands, distributed over a 105.000 square metre site. This year’s opening hours are as follows: from 6 pm to 4.15 am on 29 April; from 10 am to 2 am on week days and Sunday, 1 May; from 10 am to 4.15 am on Saturdays and Friday 6 May, and from 10 am to 10 pm Sunday 8 May.

TMB recommends visitors use the metro network for travelling to the fair (getting off at El Maresme – Fòrum station on Line 4). On 30 April and 7 May the metro will be operating throughout the night, and at specific times, where necessary, TMB plans to boost its citizen-advice service and line 4 services.
A shuttle-bus service has also been planned, connecting Plaza de Catalunya with the Fòrum.
