In Ordino, the traditional festivities on these dates are concentrated on Shrove Monday.
The Carnival events and activities in Ordino will take place on Shrove Monday, which falls on 24 February this year.
The recovered tradition of staging the theatrical farcical performance of Els Contrabandistes (The Smugglers) in which the whole town is able to participate, has become a special part of the celebration. This performance, which this year will be staging its 4th edition of the performance, involves several groups and organisations from the parish, such as the Valls del Nord Dance Troupe, the Casamanya Choir and the Ordino Art Group, along with the voluntary collaboration of the people of the town. The plot revolves around the character of the smuggler, a figure with deep ties to Pyrenean culture. The action begins when the soldiers, who are carrying out their patrols, come across a group of smugglers. To see how the story ends... come to Plaça Major in Ordino at midday on Shrove Monday.
