Caleta de Fuste Carnival 2021 - To Be Announced

Canary islands news

The municipality of Antigua organizes each year 2 carnivals, under the same theme: the first one is in Antigua and the second one in the popular tourist resort of Caleta de Fuste.

In recent years the authorities in many municipalities in the Canary Islands (not just in Fuerteventura), have chosen to integrate the local community in choosing the theme of the event, so they sometimes organize a vote in order to select the allegory for the carnival.

Due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, there are no large events currently scheduled to happen in Fuerteventura. Even the big carnival in Santa Cruz de Tenerife is cancelled in 2021, with everyone hoping that things will return to normal by 2022 so that the next edition of the carnival will be celebrated as usual in Caleta de Fuste once again.

We will update this page as soon as we know more about the next edition of the carnival in Caleta de Fuste (El Castillo) - Antigua municipality.
