The Department of Fairs and Festivities of the City Council of Badajoz presents this new website with the support of new profiles on social networks with the aim of promoting our Carnival as a Festival of International Tourist Interest. They are communication and dissemination tools that were born in this edition of 2021 and that intend to grow and evolve over time at the service of promoting the Carnival of our city on the internet and on social networks, giving it a more international character and facilitating the transmission of information between organizers, participants, fans, visitors and anyone interested in knowing more about the most identifying festival in Badajoz.
The page first presents the information on the latest edition, contests, poster, event schedule, photo galleries, program and in the future online ticket purchase for COMBA and for the acquisition of spaces for the Grand Carnival Parade.
The groups have an important and protagonist section, since they are the architects, together with what we call the Street Carnival of our party. A list and a file for each group will appear: comparsas, murgas, artefacts and minor group.
