Gargar Mural and Rural Art Festival was born from the need and the strong determination to add a distinguishing value the village. The objective is to appreciate, encourage and give visibility to artists and alternative ways of artistic expression in public rural areas.
Gargar intends to carry out artistic and cultural projects in public spaces to improve our village, bring art closer to everybody and give more resources to people.
It is an open and popular festival, which was held during the 3rd, 4th and 5th May 2019 in Penelles with works on 900m2 of walls.
Gargar emerges art, music, craft beer and food trucks, along with workshops related to other artistic disciplines. This is reflected in a programme of the highest quality, absolutely exciting for the region.
