Carnival in Sitges has a bit of everything for everyone. If you are into it, you can find some all-round debauchery and hedonistic days of partying. But many forget that it is a festival closely connect to religious festivities and is strongly tied to the country’s colonial roots.
Festivities start on Thursday 20th February 2020 and last for a week. There are parades on Sunday and Shrove Tuesday. The children’s parade takes place in the afternoon/evening and the adult’s parade is more of a nocturnal affair. Sunday 23rd February is the biggest day with the great parade of over 50 floats through town. People put a huge amount of effort into their costumes, dances and the floats. It really is something to be experienced at least once.
