Comparsas Rhythm and Harmony Contest

It would be as difficult and impolitic to have a favourite component of carnival as it would be to have a favourite child, but the comparsa groups come closest to breaking that unwritten rule and certainly epitomise the spirit of carnival with all they impart in their 'colour, joy and rhythm to the carnival with exuberant costumes and sonorous drums.'

See the Comparsas Rhythm and Harmony Contest on Saturday 2 March 2019 in the Avenida Francisco de la Roche (Avenida Anaga) from 9pm.

Here are edited highlights from last year's contest. For full coverage click here.

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.
