2500 xapes commemoratives gratuïtes
Ever since the 4th edition of the Stroll with a Hat, a commemorative badge is given away to the participants. These badges have the image of the poster and a very special square format of 52x52mm. To get one one just needs to wear a hat and take part in the event. The badges are also an essential tool to count the number of participants. We would like to keep on giving away the badges, but with the number of strollers on the rise in such a spectacular manner the costs have also risen. With your help we will be able to maintain this tradition.
Printed material: posters, flyers, cards, press dossiers
It's vital to have posters with the image of the Stroll in order to promote and distribute them through out the city, as well as flyers, cards and press dossiers.
Rewards, shipment, bank expenses, Goteo commission
The cost of the rewards: badges, brooches, pendants, dinners, adhesives, packing, shipping, bank expenses and the Goteo commission.
Publicity and promotion
There are people, hat lovers, who have never heard of the event! We must remedy this. We'd like to advertise on Facebook (promoting the event to reach more people from Barcelona) and also in the local press. If we’re too late to do it this year, we will do it next year.
Management, preparation of documents, website maintenance, design and other works
A money cushion that will allow us to pay for miscellaneous and unforeseen expenses, tasks that up to know have been done for free but that it would be fair to pay for, even if it's at a friendly rate. Whatever is left will be used to finance future Strolls.

Barcelona’s Passejada amb Barret (Stroll with a Hat) is a day for everyone, a fun and relaxed gathering in which thousands of people come together to wear their hats. From wildly inventive to elegantly discreet, young and old, all unite to show their love of hats.
This year’s edition takes place on Sunday 30th of April 2017 and to accommodate the large number of participants, instead of starting and ending at set points like in previous years, the participants will stroll at their leisure from noon, culminating in a farewell gathering at 2pm.
The setting of this very special day is the city’s most beautiful boulevard, Rambla de Catalunya, where between Diagonal and Gran Via, Barcelona will reclaim its splendour of yore and become, for at least a few hours, the world capital of hats.
Main features and goals of the crowdfunding campaign
To guarantee the continued success of the Stroll with a Hat (which in its last edition attracted close to 2000 strollers) we need to print out the promotional posters as well as the flyers that will be handed out before and during the event. We also want to maintain the tradition of the free commemorative badge. We're not short on ideas, so if we collect more, every penny will be used on this project, either on this edition or in future ones.
Why this is important
This project is for you, who likes to wear a hat and enjoys taking walks in Barcelona. So that you can continue participating in this unique, fun and delightful event where people of all ages, styles, nationalities and walks of life get together and wear their hats. Whether they’re shy and wear a simple hat or extroverted and prefer extravagant headgear, everyone is welcome to join in!
Goals of the crowdfunding campaign
- Increase the visibility of this great event.
- Collect enough money to pay for the posters, flyers and badges. With even more funds we would be able to promote the event in the press and put in motion other ideas that have come up but for which we had no funding. Any money left will be used for future editions of this event.
- Enlist help to complete different tasks that need to be done.
The organizers of the Stroll with a hat:
Cristina de Prada: I’m a milliner by trade, and my hats wish to define the individuality of the wearer and delight both the onlooker and those who wear them. With a Law degree, my heart has led me down the creative path designing and crafting haute-couture hats. On 2011 and 2012 I was finalist of the prestigious “Hat Designer of the Year” awards. I share my millinery knowledge on a blog that has become a reference in the world of hat making.
Nina Pawlowsky: From being self-taught to learning from great experts (Stephen Jones, London and Lola Ehrlich, N.Y.C.) I’ve made of millinery a passion and a profession. Specialized in theater hats, I also make hats of my own design for all kinds of occasions. As a milliner one must be a sculptor, feather and flower expert, tight rope walker, inventor, alchemist and much more! On 2013 I was awarded the Millinery Master Craftsman charter.
Together, Nina Pawlowsky and Cristina de Prada, we’ve been organizing for thirteen years Barcelona’s Stroll with a Hat, and we’re President and Secretary respectively of the Spanish Milliners Association.
