Don't miss the big carnival in Lanzarote

Carnival season is a popular time for the Canary Islands in general - all the islands have big parties during this time and it's a great atmosphere for tourists.

The carnivals usually take place between the months of February and March each year.

It's a great time to be on the island, so don't miss the occasion to participate in any of these events. People get dressed up, wear makeup, drink and party all night long, tourists and locals alike. 

Carnivals in Lanzarote 2022

Will there be any carnivals in Lanzarote in 2022?

Most of the carnivals in Lanzarote have had to be postponed due to the sixth wave of the pandemic, so there are the new dates that we know of already:

  • Puerto del Carmen: 3 - 6 March 2022
  • Playa Blanca: 25 - 27 March 2022
  • Teguise & Costa Teguise: 14 - 20 March 2022

  • San Bartolome: 22 February - 4 March 2022
  • Tinajo: -
  • Haria: -
  • La Graciosa: -

After the carnivals will be celebrated in Puerto del Carmen and the south of Lanzarote, the celebrations are expected to move to the north of the island, specifically to the municipality of Haría, on the first weekend of April. Tinajo still hasn't confirmed if it will organize a carnival in 2022 or not.

Each municipality organizes its own carnival, so you have plenty of opportunities to experience a carnival fiesta in Lanzarote during your holiday. Each carnival lasts for several days and they usually don't overlap. There is even a carnival organized on the small island of La Graciosa.
