February 28, 2019 - March 10, 2019
The Limassol Carnival is the oldest and most popular folk festivity in Limassol but also across Cyprus. Throughout the centuries the tradition of the Apokries - the Carnival festive season - was celebrated across the island, but the festivities local to Limassol grew in scope so much that in time they became an integral part of the town's identity and culture.
This year the festivities begin on Shrove Thursday (February 28th) when the two Queens of the Carnival will enter the town, and culminate with the Grand Parade on Sunday, March 10th.
