In February or March Gijon celebrates “Antroxu” or carnival.

It is one of the most traditional fiestas of Asturias and different from other carnivals.
A whole week, the city is transformed into a street party full of colour, noise, bass drums, whistles and fancy dresses.
This traditional celebration combines a wide array of entertainment and gastronomy: street band contests, parades, street concerts and gastronomic competitions.
