The Carnival of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria sets the beginning of the year on the city. As a perfect symbiosis, Christmas leaves an open road for the most important festivity of Gran Canaria. The city becomes Carnival from early on the year.

Wear your best costume and come into the carnival, it is for you, come’on, let's dance, sing and laugh… the anthem of the Carnival of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, composed by Sindo Saavedra, summarises the essence of the party, the most popular and participative of all that are celebrated on the capital of Gran Canaria. The everyday landscape of the streets, squares and, over all, the area of Parque Santa Catalina and Las Canteras Beach transforms itself, little by little, until a morning when, suddenly, everything is different.

The theme of the Carnival of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria 2019 will be "A Night in Rio" and will take place from February 15th to March 10th 2019.
