Agaete carnival
Come and celebrate the carnival in Agaete, in the northwest part of Gran Canaria.

Located in the north-west part of Gran Canaria, Agaete also organizes its own carnival event, just like many other municipalities on the island. The event is especially popular among locals, so it's a good occasion to mix with the local people and get to know more about their culture and ways of celebrating.

The carnival is a festival of great tradition in Agaete, celebrated even in the years of prohibition. The most notable event is the Burial of the Sardine, a procession of laughter and tears that accompanies the sardine to its burning ending, giving way to Lent.

Just like the other carnivals, the one in Agaete has a different theme every year and it usually takes place between February and March.
