The Caribbean is painted in color with the Carnival of Barranquilla

The Barranquilla Carnival takes place every year in Colombia four days before Ash Wednesday. This great event is one of the oldest in the country and one of the most important, since in 2003 it was declared by UNESCO “Masterpiece of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity”.


This Barranquilla tradition brings together the best ingredients: fun, laughter and costumes, the latter are undoubtedly the main protagonists throughout the parades, troupes and floats that flood the streets of the city.


Check out the agenda for Saturday, February 18 to Tuesday, February 21 , 2023!


  • Battle of the Flowers and King Momo Parade: begins the activities that will be taking place until Tuesday.


  • Great Tradition Stop: Traditional and popular music groups will be presented.


  • Great Fantasy Parade and the Festival of Orchestras: several musical groups will participate in a contest that has acquired great relevance within the country.


  • Parade and burial of Joselito: On the last day of Carnival, the funeral of Joselito will be held, a doll that the people of Barranquilla usually carry on a stretcher or in a coffin adorned with flowers and ribbons, this in order to end the carnival day and symbolizes the end of all the festivities of that year.
