Carnival in Zaragoza

Are you in Zaragoza next week? You cannot miss the Carnival festivities which will be held from 5th to 11th February.

This year, the Carnival celebration is dedicated to dance not only for fun or exercise, but also as a way to express feelings and emotions with the body, in search of a creative and aesthetic result. Dance becomes this way an art.

The programme of this new edition spreads the Carnival festivities to all areas of the city and offers many activities downtown and on the Pilar Square.

Here are some of the events not to be missed!

Let’s begin with Jueves Lardero, the Thursday before Lent: we have to say goodbye to pork and so we eat a delicious longaniza sausage. You can try some in Miguel Merino Square at 18:30. Then you can celebrate the beginning of Carnival in the party at the Sala Multiusos in the Auditorio de Zaragoza from 21:00 to 23:00.

On Friday 9th there will be a traditional music and dance parade starting from Balcón de San Lázaro up to the Plaza San Felipe. It is organized by LAQTSPERA association, the Municipal Music and Dance School of Zaragoza and the bagpipes players from El Rabal distric, with the collaboration of Bucardo, Os Chufladors, y La Quinta del Sordo.

On Saturday 10th at 18:00 you can join the concentration of Carnival troupes in Plaza San Miguel, and from that same square it will start a grand parade at 19: 00, going through Coso, Plaza de España, Calle Alfonso till the Pilar Square. The day will end with the celebration of a great Carnival party.

Children are the stars of this festivity and are invited to come dressed up to the activities that will take place on Sunday, February 11th, on the Pilar Square.

At 12 :00 you must watch the parade from Calle Alfonso to the Pilar Square, and the Carnival announcement by the traditional characters: Don Carnal, Doña Cuaresma, el Conde de Salchichón, el Caballero de la Hornilla and the Mojiganga.

Many other activities await you from 12:30 to 13:45 on the Pilar Square: shows, animation troupes, dance, music, and much more!
