November 1, 2022 – In Colombia, every year in February the Carnival of Barranquilla takes place. Declared by the UNESCO as a World Masterpiece of Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity in 2003, the carnival is a meeting place for some of the most emblematic expressions of memory and identity of the people of Barranquilla where more than 140 folk groups, singers and artists come together.

In this four-day celebration there are several street parties, parades, music and dance groups, costume parties and contests.

The Carnival starts with the Battle of the Flowers Parade as a symbolic celebration of the end of the Thousand Days War, adorned by more than 1.5 million flowers, magnolias and carnations; and ends with the “death” of Joselito Carnaval.

He is a symbolic character that represents the joy of this celebration, that after 4 days of feasts without returning home and unable to wake up from being drunk, people decided to put him in a coffin and walk him around town until he wakes up and yells “I was not dead, I was celebrating”. In 2023 the Carnival will take place from February 18th to the 21st. please contact us for more details.
