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 2021

Due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, there are no large events currently scheduled to happen in Lanzarote.

Even the big carnival in Santa Cruz de Tenerife is canceled in 2021, with everyone hoping that things will return to normal by 2022 so that the next edition of the carnival will be celebrated as usual in Lanzarote once again.

Will there be any carnivals in Lanzarote in 2021?

In the case of Arrecife, the municipality had already announced the dates for 2021 since early last year, and it hasn't officially canceled the event up until now, despite the increase in the number of cases in Lanzarote. However, we don't think that the carnival will take place in February of 2021 in its usual format, with big crowds on the streets, due to the current restrictions imposed by the authorities.

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.

The carnival is a really fun time to be in Lanzarote, as there are lots of parades and street parties and it's a festive atmosphere all over the place.
