CARNIVAL 2018 IN ENCAMP

CARNIVAL 2018 IN ENCAMP

Desde 10/02/201814/02/2018

Encamp ( Encamp )


In Encamp, Carnival is one of the most important events of the whole year. For four days, humour and revelry are the focus of daily life in the parish.


Encamp’s Carnival celebrations, the most boisterous in Andorra, are organised by the local festival commission and based around a satirical view of current events. The traditional hanging of His Majesty the Carnival King sets the tone and theme for other performances that take place over the four days of revelry and fun in the town.

Highlights of these unique Carnival celebrations include the Trial of the Smugglers, which has been staged on Carnival Sunday since the 1950s. The traditional figure of the smuggler is found throughout the Pyrenees and has led to a variety of performances and activities.

The Ball de l’Ossa (The Dance of the Bear), declared part of Andorra’s Intangible Cultural Heritage, also has a special place in Encamp's Carnival celebrations. Although its origins are uncertain, it’s often traced back to the Middle Ages and has been celebrated since the mid-20th century.

The festivities conclude with a unique event, the operation on the Carnival King. During this final event in the celebration, the Carnival King cannot be revived, despite the efforts of the Carnival medical team,and according to decree, he is burnt.
