What will your costume be at the next edition of the carnival in Maspalomas?

In normal times, if you were to be in the area of Maspalomas around February or March, we would recommend you to join the fun in the International Carnival of Maspalomas. But in 2021 there will be no carnival, due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic. 

Maspalomas Carnival 2022: 8 - 20 March 2022

The 2022 carnival in Maspalomas (San Bartolomé de Tirajana municipality) will take place from March 8 until March 20, 2022. Not many other places in Gran Canaria or the other Canary Islands have announced their carnival dates for 2022, except for Las Palmas and Santa Cruz de Tenerife.

The theme for the Maspalomas carnival in 2022 will be Magic, which is a theme that will bring out the creativity and the fantasy in a lot of the participants, who have had a lot of time to prepare their costumes.

In case you won't bring any special costume with you on holiday, you will be able to find something suitable in one of the Chinese shops or even in some of the big supermarkets.
