“Xurigué” Carnival

banner carnaval xurigue

From 23 to 26 February 2017 you will be enchanted by its magic, joy and fervour, and enjoy as never before this festival that is so much a part of Calafell and where a great time is guaranteed for all.

Why is it called “Xurigué”? The fantasy appearance of this flying fish, with its elongated body covered in small, strong and rugged scales and its big round eyes, just like the most gorgeous of the costumes, evokes the most typically Calafell and Mediterranean carnival spirit. It is a true symbol of contradiction, beautiful in bright colours and packed with a thousand surprising and exciting mysteries, just like our carnival.
