    Sitges Carnival

    BREAKING NEWS: NEW PARADE TIME OF 7PM DUE TO COVID RESTRICTIONS – BUT DON’T WORRY THE PARTY WILL STILL BE AS WILD AND FUN AS EVER. SEE BELOW FOR THE NEW ITINERARY

    Stoke Travel’s Sitges Carnival trip is €30 and includes:

    🚌 Private return-trip party bus from Barcelona
    💃 Pre-party with hour of power (Sangria/Beer) for early check-ins only
    🏺 One litre of sangria upon arrival

    The original and best Barcelona to Sitges Carnival trip. This is winter’s craziest party, and we’ll be rolling with the biggest crew. Avoid the public transport crowds, thieves and hassles and roll on our private party buses. PLUS our pre-party is LIT!

    Fat Tuesday is the same as Mardi Gras (it’s literally the translation), and just like in New Orleans Sitges goes fully debauched for the occasion – with outlandish costumes, a wild parade past the seaside boulevard, and absolute hedonism everywhere you look.

    We’ve never been ones to miss out on a party and so for Sitges Carnival 2022 we charter a bus, fill it with sangria, you, fancy dress, face paint, and head to the insanity that is Mardi Gras in Spain.

    Jump in early and reserve your spot for 2022!

    Sitges Carnival

    Fat Tuesday is Sitges Carnival’s best parade day, and in 2022 it’s on MARCH 1

    What is Sitges Carnival?

    Beat the end of the winter chill at the hottest party this side of the Atlantic. Carnival is celebrated around the world and Sitges is one of the biggest hotspots to celebrate. Only 40 minutes outside of Barcelona, Sitges Carnival normally sees 250,000 people flocking to this small coastal town. Sitges Carnival marks the last chance to go absolutely wild and give in to every temptation before the 40 days of Lent begin. This is your chance to dress up and get freaky, go all out in sequins, feather boas and body paint, or even put on a mask if you desire.

    Sitges is the LGBTQI capital of Europe, which makes the party extra amazing. Throw your inhibitions out the window, along with your shirt, and let’s have one heck of a rage!

    Private Sitges Carnival transport from Barcelona

    We know this party like no one else, we’ve been organising party trips to Sitges for over 10 years, and we want to show you how it is done! We start with the biggest pre-game in town with face painters, glitter bombs and most importantly, a one hour private open bar available to everyone who checks in early. Then, you will get picked up in the centre of Barcelona and dropped off in the centre of Sitges at the perfect time to start the party and get the best spots for the parade. You’ll be lead into the parade by our party guides to the best spot to catch the action, and everyone gets a little bottle of fun juice aka Sangria. Here is the boring but possibly most important part – we bring you back to Barcelona too, so you won’t be one of the thousands of people stranded, waiting in the cold for hours in the queue at the train station. Nope you’ll jump on one of Stoke Travel’s fleet of private buses and we’ll get you back to Barcelona safely.

    We are officially the Biggest Barcelona to Sitges Party Group! We have a huge pre-party venue, 2 check in options and plenty of buses leaving between 4:00pm – 6:00pm (Covid Hygiene Standards will adhered the whole time).

    Check in 1: From 2:30pm

    Check in 2: From 4:00pm

    Skip the queues and get the party started quicker…with over 1000 people joining our Sitges party we highly recommend that you pick up your ticket before the event from our priority “fast track” check in desk.  The Sitges Priority check in desk opens 2 weeks before the event, 17th-28th of February, Thursday to Sunday, 11am-7pm. Stoke Travel HQ: Stoke Threads, Carrer de La Maquinista 4, Barcelona 08003

    Why Fat Tuesday?

    Just like Mardi Gras, Fat Tuesday is the final and busiest day of the carnival is called Fat Tuesday, when the local carnival parade makes its way down the Rua del Extermini in decorated carriages, sporting the campest razzle-dazzle type outfits you have ever seen. Each parade is themed, for example… Rua de la Disbauxa – the Debauchery Parade, on Sunday night and the Rua de l‘Extermini – the Extermination Parade, on Tuesday night.

    Season:

    Beautiful Sitges

    Sitges is a coastal town, located just 45 minutes from Barcelona, Spain. It is sheltered by the Garraf mountains and this, combined with its position in the Mediterranean, means Sitges has a warm “microclimate” that makes it possible to enjoy outdoor activities all year round. It has 4 km of beach with a beautiful seafront promenade, lined with 20th century colonial mansions, and this is the perfect backdrop for the Sitges Carnival. Sitges town is a bit of a maze, that’s why we send guides into the madness with you, to show you around and take you to all the hottest spots.

    Meeting point

    The George Payne Irish Bar, Plaça d’Urquinaona, 5, 08010 Barcelona

    Great way to get to Sitges Festival and great people to party with! Staff was so nice and helpful, and it was a great party atmosphere in the bus during the way to Sitges.


    John

    Went there with two friends but ended up with 10 more. Loved the fact that on the way back there was so many buses so we did not have to wait long to go back home.


    Jose

    Great evening! I was able to get in a bus with all of my friends and get free booze. In the bus there was there was amazing music and some people won prizes!


    Larissa

    It was all craziness! Everyone was dressed up very nice, there were free shots in the bar, free sangria upon arrival, and the staff was the best! I’ll definitely go again next year!
