Fuerteventura Carnival and Fiesta Guide

Hide description

Throughout the year there are Fiestas in all of the towns and villages on Fuerteventura. Each town or village has it´s local saint, and a saints day. Prior to the saints day there are usually various events which include traditional singing and dancing, and on the saints day there's a religious procession. The last night usually features a firework display, with music, dancing, drinking, and eating, and offers a great opportunity to experience the local cuisine.

The Fuerteventura Carnival season is between February and March, carnivals are held in the larger towns and usually have a different theme each year. These are quite an experience, the locals seriously let their hair down, and thousands of people dress up in fancy dress, and party hard. Carnivals usually last for several days and end with a loud, and colourful parade of floats with thousands of people dancing, singing, drinking, eating and being happy.
