Preparing for Carnival 2024!

From February 11th to 13th, the Loulé Carnival will fill the streets along Avenida José da Costa Mealha.


Bringing a vibrant blend of fun, humor, color, and music, the parade on February 11th to 13th will feature 14 floats and over 600 participants. In a mix of lively entertainment and thought-provoking satire, the extras will embody the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), addressing crucial issues such as poverty eradication, gender equality, quality education, climate action, and community development.

The Loulé sambadrome will once again showcase the figures and themes of contemporary political life, with a nod to the much-anticipated new Lisbon airport, a recurring inspiration for the Loulé Corso.

On one of the floats, the issue of rising interest rates and its repercussions on housing loans, which has been a challenging issue for Portuguese families in the past year, is cleverly parodied. Zé Povinho, representing the Portuguese public, becomes the puppet of Christine Lagarde, the president of the European Central Bank, symbolizing her role in the rate hikes and delivery of unfavorable news.

On the international front, a float depicts the recent conflicts with Vladimir Putin, Volodymyr Zelensky, and Joe Biden as the crew, highlighting the two wars that have dominated headlines in recent months.

In addition to the renowned floats, the parade will feature Brazilian dancers, local entertainment groups, and various entertainers, adding to the vibrant spectacle.

Tickets for the Loulé Carnival are priced at €2 and can be purchased on the day of the event.
