The Casa de la Festa Major de Vilafranca del Penedès , located in the old chicken and giblets market, is a space that gathers together the rich folklore of the Vilafranca del Penedès town festival, held between 28 August and 3 September, to honour the feast day of Sant Fèlix . Municipally owned, it is part of the Barcelona Provincial Council Local Museum Network.
Classified as an industrial Art Nouveau building, the old chicken and giblets market was the work of Vilafranca architect Santiago Güell; it was built in 1911 and renovated in 1927. Since 1987, this space has had two functions: to archive and store the folkloric heritage related to the Vilafranca town festival and to serve as a museum to disseminate said heritage.
