Where is Arguineguin Carnival?

The carnival is celebrated all round the village but the main area is the Market Square where the Tuesday Market takes place and the Church Square of Plaza Perez Galdos.

The big carnival parade weaves in between the main streets usually from the road by the High School and down past the Ancora Shopping Center into the beach road. This means you can watch from many different points or join in.

Why Arguineguin Carnival?

This carnival is small in size compared with those of Las Palmas and Carnival Maspalomas but if you are on holiday in Puerto Rico, Arguineguin or Mogán this is perfect for the whole family and easy to get to.

With the activities and events taking place in the main parts of resort, it’s walking distance and accessible from nearby hotels and apartments.

What happens at Arguineguin Carnival?

There are new activities being added to Arguineguin Carnival each year but the main events are Drag Show on opening night, free concert, the big Carnival Parade and the Burial of the Sardine and a fireworks show.

What should I Wear to Carnival?

This is a great question and the answer is whatever you like! You can go along with a theme, a group costume or something funny and last minute or even show your nerdy side and go in full cosplay.

It’s not uncommon to see Cosplayers in the Carnival parade so keep an eye out for serious looking Stormtroopers or Superheroes. In the lead up to the carnival season, most local shops have a good selection of costumes to choose from including silly hats and face paint.
