Cartagena to resume Carnival celebrations in 2022

The big parade of the Carnival of Cartagena 2020

The City Council of Cartagena and the Carnival Federation have agreed to hold the 2022 carnivals in view of the evolution of the pandemic. The mayoress, Noelia Arroyo, said that this is “magnificent news after this year without carnivals”.

The festivities will take place between 18 February and 1 March and the programme, according to Arroyo, will include the usual activities of carnivals before the pandemic, “although adapted to the health regulations in force at the time of the celebration in terms of the use of masks, capacity and social distance”.

Precisely in order to avoid mass gatherings, the mayoress continued, it has been decided to split the final parade into two days. Thus, there will be an adult parade on Saturday 26 February in the afternoon, and another for children’s groups on Sunday 27 February, also in the afternoon. “Their route will also be shorter, although it is still to be defined,” Arroyo explained.

The decision has already been communicated to the different comparsas and chirigotas of Cartagena,” for the reactivation of all the carnival machinery,” concluded the mayoress.
