Nerja Carnival Given Unique Festival Status

Latest News Monday 11th of November 2013

Nerja CarnivalNerja’s Carnival has been given the status of “Feria Singularidad Turística” (Unique Tourist Festival) by Malaga county council. This award recognises the originality and tradition of the festival which takes place every year just before Lent.

Nerja Carnival dates from the 1920s, but the modern version that we know today started in 1984, becoming one of the most important tourism events in the region with thousands of people taking part.

For a festival to be given this unique status it has to have taken place at least three times and reflect the customs, culture, folklore, gastronomy and ethnicity of the towns where they are held.

Every year more than 400,000 visitors come to the region to take part in the different festivals that have been given the Singularidad Turística status and are an important part of the local tourism economies.
