CARNIVAL OF ANDORRA LA VELLA & ESCALDES-ENGORDANY 2017

CARNIVAL OF ANDORRA LA VELLA & ESCALDES-ENGORDANY 2017

From 24/02/2017 to 28/02/2017

Andorra la Vella & Escaldes-Engordany ( ALV, ESC )


Andorra la Vella and Escaldes-Engordany celebrate Carnival together, with a parade and troupe contest that attracts large crowds looking for fun.


Year after year, the Carnival of Andorra la Vella and Escaldes-Engordany proves why it is one of the best-loved events on the Andorran calendar. The main reason is the contest of the Troupe and Dance Contest, which ends in a large parade that marches through the streets and squares of both towns. This year the parade will begin in Plaça Guillemó Andorra la Vella and end in Prat del Roure in Escaldes-Engordany, where the finale is held along with a dance contest and community barbecue with hamburgers on Saturday, 25 February.

The week finishes off with workshops and activities for children, and the most traditional events are the “Theft of the Pots” in the historic old town of Andorra la Vella on 28 February and the “Trial of the Carnival King” in the evening of the same day in Plaça Coprínceps in Escaldes-Engordany, which will once again bring the fun-filled revelry to an end.
