Chiquito Carnival of Cádiz
As if the 10 days of carnival were not enough, the Chiquito Carnival of Cádiz takes place the weekend after. It was introduced in the 1980s by popular request.
The Chiquito Carnival of Cádiz is an opportunity to see and hear the chirigotas performing in a much more informal way in various areas such as Plaza de las Flores, the Cathedral, Candelaria, San Agustín, Los Callejones, Pericón de Cádiz or the medieval neighborhood of El Pópulo.
Whilst less well attended than the main carnival, the Chiquito Carnival is really for the population of the city, an opportunity for them to wind down. Some reckon it is more fun than its larger brother.
