Fuerteventura Carnival 2017

Every year, between the months of January and March, Fuerteventura and the rest of the islands are dressing up for party and start celebrating their first big event of the year.

This year the main events will take place in Corralejo, Puerto del Rosario, Caleta de Fuste and Morro Jable.

Corralejo Carnival 2017

Dates for the La Oliva and Corralejo Carnival: 9 - 19 March 2017

The theme for the carnaval was voted online and the option of Inventions & Science was chosen as the winner this year.

Bring your geeky costumes and come to the biggest carnival in Fuerteventura. The streets will be full of crowds that come to admire the beautiful floats in the parade. The main parade continues with a party that lasts until morning, so if you enjoy a good Spanish fiesta, Corralejo is the place to be during this time.

The poster for the event was designed by Danilo Ruiz and is titled: "Marie Curie, the queen of the Carnival and Einstein, the evil pirtate, are coming to the Carnaval".

The people in Lanzarote will also be celebrating with their own carnivals and Playa Blanca, the resort that is closest to Fuerteventura, has as a theme The Marine World, in order to announce the opening of the first underwater museum in Europe close to their shore.
