The Frigiliana Carnival together with the Frigiliana 3 Cultures Festival is one of the most popular Events in the Axarquia.

The Frigiliana Carnival takes place after the Nerja Carnival, this year the Frigiliana Carnival is celebrated on March 2, 2023.

History of the Frigiliana Carnival

The history of the Frigiliana Carnival goes back a few years. Frigiliana has always held great celebrations of Holy Week and other festivities. But the carnival was a festivity only for the residents of the town. This has changed in recent years. And frigiliana becomes a whole carnivalesque spectacle. Many Nerja associations and residents of nearby towns participate in the Frigiliana Festival.

The Frigiliana Carnival parade is very beautiful, as it runs through the streets of the historic center of the town. Hundreds of costumes, light and color in the streets of Frigiliana. Performances and music.

The Frigiliana Carnival has organized different events, contests and concerts to further popularize this festivity.

The Carnival of Frigiliana, like that of Nerja, illuminates the streets of the historic center, and organizes a festivity giving life to the town and neighbors who enjoy watching the parade. The center of Frigiliana shines with its own light.

The organizers of the Frigiliana carnival and all the participants who organize concerts, prepare costumes and shows promise us a full carnival of color, dance and celebrations in the streets.

Frigiliana, like other towns in the area, has many prizes for the participants. And this attracts many participants from other cities. You can see the prizes in the official Carnival 2023 program.


The street parades of Frigiliana and some associations that participate in the Carnival parade are inspired by the traditional Moors and Christians festivals or the festival of the 3 cultures of Frigiliana. The event is highly recommended to visit.
