Local Events and Fiestas



Bring your costumes and attend the biggest and best carnival in Fuerteventura. It will be (as it always is) big colourful affair with all sorts of beautiful floats and dancers in the most amazing costumes.


This year the theme “Inventions and Science” was chosen by the public via an online vote. So if you can theme your outfit to that, brilliant – if not Brilliant anyway as it doesn’t matter. Come and join the crowded streets for a spectacle to remember. The main parade will go by and then everyone PARTIES which normally lasts till the very early hours.

If you enjoy a good Spanish style party then Corralejo is the place to be this week
