Sitges Carnival Spain 2018

Sitges, 45 minutes south of Barcelona

Fat Tuesday (Mardi Gras) 13th February 2018

Sitges Festival Spain 2018

Once a year before Lent begins, the beautiful seaside town of Sitges goes bonkers for sequins, feathers, frivolity and Carnival. We’ve never been ones to miss out on a party, and will charter a bus for 2018, fill it with sangria, you, fancy dress, face paint, and head to the insanity!

What is it?

The wildest winter fiesta in Spain! Beat the February chill at the hottest party this side of the Atlantic.
Carnival is celebrated around the world and Sitges is one of its biggest hotspots, with 250,000 people flocking to this small coastal town. Carnival marks the last chance to go absolutely wild and give in to every temptation before the 40 days of Lent begin. This is your chance dress up and get freaky, go all out in sequins, feather boas and body paint, or even put on a mask if you desire.
Sitges is the gay and lesbian capital of Europe, they sure do know how to party. So throw your inhibitions out the window, along with your shirt, and let’s have one heck of a party!

Why with us?

Because we know this party like no one else, and want to show you how it is done! With Stoke, you will get picked up in the centre of Barcelona and dropped off in the centre of Sitges at the perfect time to start the party and get the best spots for the parade.

Why Tuesday?

The final and busiest day of the carnival is called Fat Tuesday, when the local carnival parade makes its way down the Rua del Extermini in decorated carriages, sporting the campest razzle-dazzle type outfits you have ever seen. Each parade is themed, for example… Rua de la Disbauxa – the Debauchery Parade, on Sunday night and the Rua de l‘Extermini – the Extermination Parade, on Tuesday night.

  • Beautiful Sitges.

    Sitges is a coastal town, located just 45 minutes from Barcelona, Spain. It is sheltered by the Garraf mountains and this combined with its position in the Mediterranean, means Sitges has a warm “micro-climate” that makes it possible to enjoy outdoor activities all year round. It has 4km of beach with a beautiful sea front promenade lined with 20th century colonial mansions, and this is the perfect backdrop for the Sitges Carnival. Sitges town is a bit of a maze, thats why we send guides into the madness with you, to show you around and take you to all the hottest spots.

    Enough said. We’ll meet at a central Barcelona bar to check in and warm up and then we’ll board the bus together.
