One of the most significant and colorful events in Luxembourg is the annual carnival (Cavalcade de Diekirch).
But in 2021, due to the coronavirus pandemic, festival events may be cancelled.
Carnival days precede Lent. The tradition of carnival is very old, and it is connected with a simple idea: before Lent, you need to eat, drink and work up to your heart's content.
What could be more fun, brighter and more interesting than a carnival?! Carnival Sunday, Monday and Tuesday is the peak of the Luxembourg Carnival season. And this is truly the most colorful sight of the year! The whole country becomes a platform for one big carnival.
For children, a lot of entertainment, games and contests with prizes are invented. Most of the costumes are made by hand. Parades and street dances, festive concerts and entertainment shows, fireworks from sweets and popcorn that you can catch in umbrellas - all this is the Luxembourg carnival! So get more umbrellas for the carnival!
