In February, Cadiz becomes one big party. It’s carnival time.

You can hear carnival music in any corner of the city, and the last touches are put to the fancy-dress costumes (in Cadiz they are known as tipos), some of them real works of art. The locals put their hearts and souls into what is one of the most eagerly awaited events in the city, and perhaps the most fun-filled and entertaining of all the Spanish carnivals.

Compared with the spectacular nature of other carnival celebrations, the light-hearted fun and entertainment of the Carnival of Cadiz makes it a unique fiesta which is well worth getting to know.

And there is no lack of other events during this time to ensure that the days of Carnival in Cadiz are complete.

The whole city is involved. This is a perfect time to get to know it and to enjoy the inventiveness and sense of fun of the people of Cadiz.


The origins of the Carnival of Cadiz are curious. The gastronomic fiestas are a great place to get into the spirit of the fiesta.

The costume is the real king of the carnival. It is almost obligatory to wear fancy dress, above all on the first Saturday of the carnival.


For nearly 20 days, more than 100 groups compete in the competition through the semi-final and final, where only a maximum of four groups per style are admitted.


Carnival is celebrated throughout Andalusia, permeating many nooks and peoples of joy, color and wit.The roots of this holiday on the Andalusians is manifested in the parades of floats fun, dancing, costume contests and carnival groups that go out
