Event Name: Santiago de Cuba Carnival 2018
Start Date: Wednesday, 18-Jul-2018
End Date: Friday, 27-Jul-2018
If you could only choose one Cuban festival, the Santiago de Cuba Carnival is certainly one not to be missed. The biggest festival on the island, and one of the oldest in Latin America, this Afro-Cuban fiesta pays homage to el son, the traditional music of Cuba and main genre of the famed Buena Vista Social Club. Bring your party hat; this one’s not for the faint of heart. Conga parades, over the top mamarachos and a flurry of color will sweep you off your feet all week long.
