Carnival in Málaga is an eminently popular festival preceding Lent. It is unique in Málaga because of its multicultural, colourful and spontaneous character when celebrations are held in both the Historic Quarter and in the other districts of the city.

They hold hundreds of playful activities during the warm winter of Málaga.  The fiesta, led by the Fundación Ciudadana del Carnaval (Citizens' Carnival Foundation), starts in Málaga with meetings of groups of singers, bands of street musicians, parades, quartets and choirs in the Teatro Cervantes in a contest that attracts contestants from all over the province as well as other places in Andalusia.

Gastronomy also plays an important part during the preliminaries. Cabbages, casseroles, rice dishes, stews and much more; each district organises its popular taste sessions with Carnival songs as an essential part of the fun. Finally, Carnival takes to the streets of Málaga on the week before Ash Wednesday; a week ending on Malagueta beaches with the burial of the anchovy.
