A mainstay is Spanish festivals and parades are Cabezudos (“giants” or “big heads”), which feature large paper-mâché heads paired with ornate costumes—often inspired by religious figures and popular culture. Famed Spanish folk artists Ventura & Hosta travel from Catalonia, Spain and facilitate a Tricentennial-inspired Cabezudos Parade at Pearl Farmers Market. The parade culminates in a live performance by Volcán, the 13-piece Indie-Latin Orchestra based in South Texas.

Beginning in June, Pearl’s pop-up shop site will be transformed into Galería Olé—a one-stop shop for our Summer of Spain. Two exhibitions by famed contemporary Spanish photographers (Beatrix Molnar and Andrés Marín) showcase groundbreaking work. In addition, the Tricentennial commemorative limited edition fine art print (300 issued) by world-renowned graphic artist Anna Juan will be on view. All artwork available for sale along with Olé merchandise—fans, tees, and totes—and online ticket sales for signature events.
