Argelès Carnival 2017 (Postponed)

11th March 2017

Carnaval d’Argelès

Feeling a bit off colour after the gloom of winter? The Argelès carnival promises to be a colourfest of warmth and fun, bringing you all the colour you need.

Costumes, floats, confetti and popular tradition, role play and fancy dress, as the Argelès clubs and groups join together for 3 days of fun and fantasy.

Follow the Carnival King through the streets of the village – and watch him burn, taking with him all the evil spirits.
And this year, why not join in by popping into the tourist office, signing up and going to  the procession in your own fancy dress, with the theme superheroes and clowns?

The tourist office team will give you multicoloured confetti to sprinkle as you walk. Great fun for the kids…great fun for the adults too!
