“Festa Major” of Solsona
From 7th to 10th September 2019
In 2008, the main festival became an acknowledged festival of nationa interest. This celebration is dedicated to the patron virgin of Solsona, the Mare de Déu del Claustre. It strated in 1653 and nowadays, the main structure and the location has been kept, as in the 17th century, in the heart of the old town. The main days are the 8th and the 9th of September when the giants, the little horses, the eagle, the dragon and other folkloric characters, come out onto the old town streets. Another imoprtant element of Solsona’s folklore are the “trabucaires”, men wearing a Catalan costume and shooting their blunderbuss in the air noisily.
