The Candelera Fair
This is a very important festival in Molins de Rei. The Candelera Fair has been held for more than 150 years. If you want to know why, come and find out!
Molins de Rei has managed to maintain the Candelera (Candlemas) Fair alive thanks to a combination of tradition and modernity. Its origin lies in agriculture, but nowadays there are also exhibitors from different trade sectors, such as food, automobiles and craftsmanship. This great fair, held on the first weekend in February, owes its name to the well-known saying in Molins "tant si la Candelera plora, com si riu, a Molins de Rei, veniu!", which roughly translated means "whether the Candelera cries or laughs, you are welcome to Molins de Rei!"
