From Salerno to Maiori, from Sala Consilina to Baronissi, here is how the Carnival is celebrated in the province of Salerno.

From the parades of allegorical wagons to the appointments with art and culture, without forgetting the centuries-old tradition of events linked to popular music, the 2018 Carnival in Campania promises to be full of events that, like every year, are filled with a wide assortment of tasty recipes, such as the traditional Carnival lasagna, and delicious desserts, chiacciere, castagnole, sanguinaccio and migliaccio.

For the fun of adults and children, here is a wide selection of the most characteristic parades in the province of Salerno scheduled until February 18, 2018:


Now in its 47th edition, the Agropoli Carnival, organized by the Carro Association, will animate the town at the gates of Cilento from February 4 to 13, 2018.
