Santa Catalina: the heart of the Carnival also beats by day

Santa Catalina Park, centre of the celebrations in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, brings all the audiences together in a massive day of partying and concerts.

Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, 21 February, 2020.— Santa Catalina is the heart of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria Carnival: that heart beats non-stop throughout the programme, which always features the murgas and comparsas contest and the great galas in which the Queen or the Drag Queen of the festivities are chosen, on a large stage that, in 2020, recreates the world of Once upon a time at Carnival. As well as this, Santa Catalina Park is the centre of the events which are just entertainment, with no juries or scores, which enliven the Carnival Nights … and also the daytime celebrations. 

25 February, Carnival Tuesday (Mardi Gras), a bank holiday here, is the focal point for a great day of celebrations for all audiences, with live music on the main stage and in the entertainment area behind. From noon onwards, there’s room for too in a day that lasts until night-time with the appearance on the stage of Juanes, as the great international performer for the 2020 fiesta (18.00 hrs).

The Carnival has made these daytime sessions in Santa Catalina vital events in recent years. The carnival programme has been changing according to the demands of the public itself: in particular of family audiences, so the opportunities for enjoying this great winter fiesta in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria have grown. This is something that is also appreciated by the many people passing through the city at this time of year, right in the high season for tourism: both for people staying in the city’s hotels and apartments, and the day-trippers from the south of the island, or the cruise ship passengers, who disembark for a few hours to join in on the Carnival.
