Final of the Murgas Contest in Santa Cruz

Finally, we come to the final of the murga contests, which takes place on Friday 15 February 2019. We appreciate that the murgas can be something of an acquired taste and is probably a taste you may not acquire, unless you speak very good Spanish and have an incredibly keen interest in local politics and current affairs. The longest contest of the whole run up to the carnival too, lasting in excess of six hours, if you don't have time or inclination for the whole thing, here are 27 minutes of edited highlights from last year's contest.

Provisional Programme for Santa Cruz Carnival 2019

Most Santa Cruz carnival events are televised via RTVE or RTVC, locally, nationally and internationally or recordings may be found on the CarnavalTVC Youtube channel.

All events are liable to change beyond our control.
