February 4 @ 12:00 am - February 26 @ 11:59 pm
This is a celebration with a markedly popular character, in which every year there is a more decisive commitment to citizen participation. Parades, pyrotechnics, chirigotas, theatre, costume contests, sardine grills, musical shows, games, “cabezudos”, popular “queimada” and the traditional burial of the sardine are the main axes of a programme that during several days tries to cover a wide spectrum of ages and preferences, and that every year is complemented with new activities.
The historical centre is the area that hosts the majority of the festive events. It is without doubt the perfect occasion for the people of Burgos to get into the role of the character they have always wanted to be.
The burial of the Sardine is worth mentioning, which brings the celebration of Burgos’ carnival to an end.
