What will your costume be at the 2020 edition of the carnival in Maspalomas?

If you're in the area of Maspalomas around the middle of March, you must join in on the 2020 International Carnival of Maspalomas.

Also, if you're also interested in the festival happening in the capital, see the dedicated page for the Las Palmas de Gran Canaria Carnival 2019.

Maspalomas Carnival 2020 Dates: 5 - 15 March 2020

The theme for the Maspalomas carnival 2020 has been chosen through a popular vote online, for the first time in the history of the carnival. The option with the most votes was Musicals, with almost 60% of the total number of votes cast. 

So in 2020, the magic of Broadway will move to Maspalomas to bring over the music, dance and colors of the great musicals of history.

The proposed themes for 2020 were the following: The musicals world, Imperial Russia, The magic.

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.

The schedule below is from the 2019 edition of the carnival in Maspalomas. We will leave it up until we have more details about the schedule of events in 2020, so you can get an idea of what will be going on during the carnival.
