Madeira Carnival

Carnival Lights Up Madeira in February


One of the most exciting celebrations of the year in Madeira, Portugal will be taking place in February. From the 3rd to the 10th of February the celebrations will take the form of a great parade of floats as well as thousands of people dancing and making music in the streets. It is thought that the Brazilian Carnival can be historically traced back to this colourful and crazy event.

The Atlantic Festival

For a number of years now Madeira has been supplementing its magnificent new years eve, fire work display with a mid year competition that determines which competing country will be chosen to light up the sky for its forthcoming new year display. This takes place every Saturday in June and is combined with a full calendar of arts and musical events.
