Flashmob in Madrid to Celebrate “Day of the Celiac”

Author: Celiac But Happy

FACE, the Spanish Federation of Celiac Associations, is organizing a flashmob called “With rhythm and gluten free” on Saturday May 26th to celebrate the Day of the Celiac.

According to Wikipedia , “A flash mob (or flashmob) is a group of people who assemble suddenly in a public place, perform an unusual and seemingly pointless act for a brief time, then disperse, often for the purposes of entertainment, satire, and artistic expression.”

So you can fully understand the concept, please watch the following video shot in the Antwerp Central Station (Belgium):

There are plenty of flashmobs examples in YouTube

Detailed information can be found at FACE’s web but it’s in Spanish so we have summarized here what you need:

  • An audio file you should download and take with you the day of the event in your MP3 player (iPod, smartphone, etc).
  • A baguette or similar shaped bread.
  • 1 blue balloon.
  • 1 marker pen.
  • Wear a white tee shirt, blue jeans, and sneakers (trainers) and an orange bow (yeah, I wonder why the bow too :-)
  • No alcoholic drinks, drugs, etc.


  • Date: May 26th, 2012
  • Time: 11:00 am
  • Place: Plaza Callao, Madrid

Come on, invite all your family and friends, celiacs or not and let’s have some gluten-free fun :-D
