Caleta de Fuste Carnival 2022 will have a Caribbean theme

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.

The Carnivals in Antigua will be celebrated in the month of February from 17 to 27, while Monday 21 has been declared a carnival holiday. Everyone involved with the event is enthusiastic that the carnival will be celebrated once again in 2022, while still respecting all the safety measures imposed by the pandemic.
