The "Funny Carnival" of Arles

Since 2002, the City of Arles has been celebrating Carnival and the arrival of spring. Carnival has now become an unmissable event.

On the menu is the big parade, often accompanied by shows and street arts activities.

An event always colourful and in good humour, a real "melting pot" of genres, a patchwork of cultures and artistic disciplines: colourful costumes, improbable machines, world music, dances, acrobatics and confetti...
Every year, a dozen companies, groups and associations, professionals and amateurs alike, from Arles and elsewhere, bring this carnival to life.
