From February 25th to March 5th 2017 the legendary Carnival of Cadiz will be taking place. Our Carnival is recognised as Festivals of International Tourist Interest, and has some entertaining characteristics making it a unique event and one of the largest in the world.
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. Check out the ‘chirigotas’, officially recognised groups of ‘gaditanos’ (people of Cadiz) who wander the streets entertaining everyone with their funny songs. These songs satirize everything from pop stars to politicians, and even if you don’t speak Spanish, you can get into the swing of their jaunty tunes. All the streets are decorated in the spirit of the carnival, and there are people dressed up everywhere enjoying these chilled-out and ironic festive days.
