Cadiz’s carnival is the one of the most extravagant parties that you can attend in Europe. This fast, exuberant burst of revelry and colour is centred on Shrove Tuesday, at the end of February or beginning of March, and it’s a celebration of life and excess. Get swept up in the excitement and get ready for the party of a lifetime. In total the festivities last for ten days which take in two weekends.
Rooms are booked months in advance so be sure to plan your visit well ahead of time. The air in Cadiz is full of music during carnival. This music varies in terms of skill and style but with everyone playing their hearts out it’s hard not to enjoy it.Carnival in Cadiz ends with the Burial of the Sardine and you can join hundreds of “mourners” following the paper mache fish and loudly mourning its passage. Most understandable as no one wants to see the end of a great party!
