Cyprus Carnival 2023

Carnival has its roots in ancient Greece where celebrations were being organized in honour of God Dionysus. Ancient Greeks got dressed in various costumes, wore masks, and had fun in feasts for days. Cyprus’s version is part of a long Christian tradition of enjoying a final blast of self-indulgence before the austerity and fasting of the Lenten period.

Cyprus Carnival is one of the most popular and vibrant cultural events on the island. During the Carnival period, the island comes alive with a colourful parade in all the cities, with people wearing costumes, and dancing to traditional music. Limassol is the main city that hosts most carnival events all over the island and hosts the biggest parade in Europe. This year, the carnival will take place between February 16 – 26, 2023 and it promises to be bigger and better than ever before. The Paphos Carnival Parade will take place on the 25th of February 2023.

If you’re looking for a unique and exciting way to experience the culture and traditions of Cyprus, then the Carnival is the perfect event for you.
