To mark the 90th anniversary of the Second Republic, Barcelona will organize artistic performances and community events across all districts of the city. 

The city will see music, dance, and choreography spectacles on April 14 to commemorate nine decades since the proclamation of the republic. 

A musical score by Bárbara Granados will be performed by music schools from each respective district and accompanied by local dance groups. 

The day’s events will be one of the highlights of the ‘Primavera Republicana’ historical memory celebration, taking place from April 13-18 in the Catalan capital with a decentralized schedule of activities. 

This year's slogan is 'The Public Revolution' and the open outdoor areas surrounding Born cultural centre will be the main stage for the activities. 

In addition, three new memory stands and 10 information stalls will be placed throughout the districts.

The ongoing health crisis has forced organizers to adapt commemorations to smaller formats. In addition, it is necessary to reserve tickets in advance in order to comply with the capacity established by the authorities. 

Ticket reservations can be made through the Primavera Republicana website, which also contains full details on all the activities.

The sites chosen for the acts in each district are: 

Ciutat Vella - Anti-tuberculosis Dispensary

Eixample - Plaça del Cinc d'Oros

Sants-Montjuïc - Olympic Stadium

Les Corts - Les Corts Prison

Sarrià-Sant Gervasi - Blanquerna school

Gràcia - Plaça de les Dones del 36

Hota-Guinardó - Republican Pavillion

Nou Barris - Plaça de la República

Sant Andreu - Casa Bloc

Sant Martí - Foment Martinenc

Catalan government commemorates anniversary

In addition to the events organized by the Barcelona council, the government will also be commemorating the 90th anniversary of Spain's Second Republic with events throughout Catalonia.

These will be kicked off on Tuesday with 'Three days in April. 90 years since the proclamation of the Republic', a visual exhibition at the Catalan capital's Palau Robert marking the circumstances that led to the 3-day long Catalan Republic.

Information on other events, including book presentations, conferences, and plays, among others, can be found here.
