Tudela carnivals 2022 will have a smaller format
Although Tudela Carnivals were celebrated again in 1983, it was in 1989 when some members of the Coordinator of Carnivals Office recovered the old carnival figure of the "Zipotero Tudelano". Historians say that they were people with white masks, blue shirts or blouses, white or black pants, covered heads, and hanging from their shoulders a white cushion tied at one end and full of candies and sugared almonds that are thrown into the air during the parade of Friday, after the rocket announcing the Carnival.
The figure of "Zipotero" completes his outfit on a stick with a snack tied to a rope at its end and bells. In Tudela Carnivals, it is important to highlight Adult and Children's Mask Parades.
The current situation planned for this year is that Zipoteros will not open, for the second consecutive year, these winter festivals are scheduled for the last weekend of February. Even so, don't worry because the Tudela City Council is planning a parade so that all residents can enjoy this festivity in the best possible way. In addition, this February, you can visit the Traditional Market of Artisan Products of Navarra that will be installed on Saturday the 13th in Plaza de Los Fueros from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. The Peña Beterri, which helps organize it, ensures that buying in this type of market favours "the small craftsman and native trade of the land".
