Torrevieja Carnival 2024

The full schedule of events for Torrevieja Carnival 2024, or Carnaval Torrevieja, to use the correct name, has now been published, and once again the event is set to bring colour, glamour, music and fun to the streets of the town.

The Councillor for Festivities, Rosario Martínez Chazarra, accompanied by the president of the Torrevieja Carnival Association, Paco Pizana and the vice president, César Berná, presented the programming for the Torrevieja Carnival 2024 at a press conference. Activities, music, colour and more, aimed at both locals, but this time with a leaning towards tourists, will concentrate the events on weekends, so that more people will be available to visit one of the most interesting festivals at the regional level in the municipality.

Furthermore, advertising investment has been made online and offline, to publicise Torrevieja Carnival across different areas of Spain, Alicante, Valencia, provinces of Murcia, Albacete and Madrid. The audience segmentation has been carried out focusing on people interested in parties, events, concerts, festivals, culture, leisure, fun, entertainment within the social concept and carnivals, who might then be interested in giving Carnaval Torrevieja a try this year.
