Valle Gran Rey Carnival 2017

Dates for the Valle Gran Rey Carnival: 27 February - 4 March 2017

This year the theme for the Carnaval is The Far East or the Lejano Oriente, as it is its original Spanish name.

The festivities will take place in the area called La Playa in the San Pedro Square (Plaza San Pedro).

The theme was chosen online and more than 60% of people who expressed their opinion have voted for the Oriental theme.

 

All of the Canary Islands have their own celebration, with the Carnival in Tenerife being the largest of them all and also the second largest in the world (only after Rio de Janeiro). La Gomera doesn't have the big crowds that you can find on the larger islands, but the carnival still attracts some tourists and has that spanish fiesta feel. It the ideal combination for a holiday where you can relax and party at the same time, without being overcrowded.
