The Golden Goat Festival

08/08/2019 - 09/08/2019 Moià

Born from a legend, Moià's Golden Goat Festival explains the discovery of a treasure.

Legend has it that if you find the golden goat you will be blessed with superhuman strength and exceptional virility. The night before the Golden Goat Festival, the people of Moià go to Clarà Castle to look for this figure, transforming the event into a night-time game. The following day, they take the goat down to the town and hand it over to the feudal lord, who requested it in exchange for giving up the droit du seigneur with the most beautiful maidens. However his greed is greater than his promise and the locals of the town punish him by stoning him. Alas, he is made of cardboard!
