The Venetian Carnival

In the moonlight, I take my pen to write you a word … on the Venetian Carnival of Castres.

Each year, during the 3rd weekend in March, a carnival takes place, an unmissable event in our “Little Venice of Haut-Languedoc”. Multicolored parades, flamboyant costumes and entertainment with Italian flavours: Bellissimo!

3 days of colorful dreams

The Venetian Carnival in Castres is 3 days of rich and varied programming: wanderings of the masked, a play at the Théâtre de Castres, spectacular show on the water, delicious Italian market …

Ideal for a dream weekend with the family, or with your Colombine or your Pierrot.

"Festa sull’acqua" or aquatic fairyland

No need to do a comedy (Del Arte ?!) to come and watch the “Festa sull’acqua”, a night show on the Agout river in the center of Castres. Dancers and acrobats, subtle lighting and gondolas sailing peacefully in front of the eternal Houses on the Agout are part of this magical, luminous and completely unusual animation. A magic moment !!!

Dancing with the wolves

The wanderings and strolls of the Masques – from France, Castres and Venice – are a great opportunity to see their sumptuous costumes. They are real works of art: satin, silk and noble materials of all kinds, glitter, jewelry …

Nothing is too much to have an extraordinary and extravagant outfit. Certain costumes have sometimes even won awards at the Venice Carnival!

The good life

What is a beautiful event without sweetness?

The Venetian Carnival of Castres is no exception to this rule! You will find many opportunities to enjoy an Italian aperitif on the Place Jean Jaurès as well as a market of products with the sweet scent of Italy on the Place Pierre Fabre. The sweetness of life.

In the moonlight, I leave my pen and conclude this word:

Carnival gets carried away

Eyes full of stars

But whatever

It was fabulous
