Looking to get out of the city for an explosion of photography, poetry and classical art? ? Then join in the one-day arts festival at the cultural center of Can Bisa in the lovely seaside town of Vilassar de Mar on July 28th which comes on the heels of their session on June 16th  featuring independent art and experimental sound. Just a 35-minute train ride from Barcelona, the nonprofit event has expanded theatrically and electronically.

The space is designed to share, create, see, talk, and live various cultural forms, with areas for music, culture, design, gastronomy and, of course, art. Whether you’re seeking out live music or sustainable fashion and design, Vidmar Festival will not disappoint. The interactive event offers workshops, exhibitions, street food, and theater and artistic experimentation.

Filled with the blood and sweat of independent local artists, the event promotes those who breathe and live art… but any and all creative and free spirits are welcome to attend.
