Carnival in Mijas 2024

February 17, 2024

Carnival in Mijas 2024 will be celebrated in 3 days, each with parades in a different part of the city. The first parade will be in La Cala de Mijas, on February 23, then in Las Lagunas on the 24th and finally, in Mijas Pueblo on the 25th. The Ayuntamiento de Mijas has released the Carnival program (below) which is one page only – easy to remember, right? You can see it on the page of Turismo Mijas. Below, as usual, the translation to English and main locations. See you around!

To take part in the carnival parades, it is necessary to get to the departing place and register one hour before the departure. To go watch and enjoy, all you need is the address! Notice that a ‘cabalgata‘ usually involves more than just a walking parade; there are probably going to be either horses or mechanical cars shining through the parade as well. I think it will be beautiful and worth going if you are in Mijas at the time.

Mijas will celebrate Carnival 2024 with local parades for their kids (of all ages) that want to enjoy some time having fun while watching the creative costumes their friends and neighbours bring on the parade. I think it will be a good opportunity to join in the fun if you are in the town on the Carnaval dates. Have a great time!
