Magna Celebratio

MAGNA CELEBRATIO – THE ROMAN FESTIVAL OF BADALONA

Every year on the last weekend of April, the Museum organizes the roman festival of Magna Celebratio, with the aim of presenting the city’s Roman heritage through historical reconstruction. For three days the festival combines recreations of crafts and scenes of everyday life, carried out by specialized groups, with outreach activities, including workshops, conferences and visits to several archaeological sites of the Roman city of Baetulo, today Badalona. 

The festival is possible because of the cooperation and the work of many people, especially the reenactment group of Badalona, linked to the Museum. This association made of volunteers, interested in understanding the Roman era through the reconstruction of everyday life and is responsible for many recreations and exhibitions that can be seen during the festival. If you are interested in being part of it, you can send us an email to: info@museudebadalona.cat.

With the years, the festival has gone cementing giving a leadership to the historical reenactment and to the recreations of the daily life of our Roman ancestors.
