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 9th until the 12th. Everyone involved with the event is enthusiastic that the carnival will be celebrated normally once again in 2023.
The Carnival of the Municipality of Antigua presents a lineup of live performances, parades, juggling, children's shows, batucadas, carnival arenas through the main streets and festivals for all audiences, announces the mayor, Matías Peña García.
February will once again be the month when residents and visitors alike will get dressed in bright colors, wear costumes and enjoy the party where nobody is who they seem to be.
While in Antigua the carnival is celebrated from February 9 to 12, in Caleta de Fuste the carnival will take place from February 17 untile February 19.
Orchestras such as the Grupo Bomba, Kandela, N-Klave or Wamampi from La Gomera will star in the Verbenas at the Antigua carnival site, to which are added in Caleta de Fuste the performances and concerts of the groups Maldita EGB, Nuevo Klan, Qué Chimba, together with the well-known DJ Clandestina and Valdivia.
These are the usual events that are organized during the carnival in Caleta de Fuste. These events take place over the course of several days, with various activities organized each day.
