What’s On February 2022

Cava with Views in the Axarquia

For those who participated in dry January, cheers! February in the Axarquia brings us almond blossom, olive harvesting and the social calendar springs back into action. We look forward to warmer and longer days with exciting events for this year. Let’s make February a month of discovery…

Carnival Parade Velez-Malaga – 19th February

From Cruz de Cordero to Plaza de las Carmelitas at 17.00hrs there’s a parade with music.

What is it? Carnival marks the last celebration before Lent begins. The 40 days of Lent are supposed to be pensive and mournful in the Catholic calendar, so carnival is the last party before this period that sees us going into Spring. Marking the last day before lent Andalucians hit the street in fancy dress and celebrate.

Benagalbón celebrates its patron saint festivities in honor of the Virgen de la Candelaria from February 2 to 6 with a program of activities and musical performances, children’s, humor, and the traditional lunch for the elderly, etc.
