1. The Carnival of Ajaccio

In a sense, this is a “classic” Carnival, enlivened by events in the streets, float parades, Carnival masks, confetti, colors, music. For this occasion, the city of Ajaccio wears a funny atmosphere.

This year, Mardi Gras is February 9. For further information about the Carnival of Ajaccio, you can visit ville d’Ajaccio official website,


2. The Carnival of Sartène

It’s one of the most important and long-awaited events on the island of beauty. Born in 2001 thanks to a group of friends who wanted to revive the great glories of the Carnival of Sartène, today this event is a real must. For two days, the inhabitants of this small village will gather in the square to parade with floats.

Usually, the Carnival of Sartène takes place between early March and early May. For further information, contact A Scumissa association.
