Mindelo has a thriving music scene and this is embodied in the vibrant and colourful carnivals that take place throughout the year. The fantastic Brazilian-style Mardi Gras carnival in February sees people from all over the world descend on Mindelo for three to four days of music, costumes, samba dancing, and partying throughout the nights. Like Rio, but smaller and closer to home with a real taste of the exotic side of the islands.
Yearly, on the feast of Mardi Gras (usually around February). The warm ups begin a couple of days before, with the Samba procession the night before Mardi Gras, and the actual Carnaval on the day of Mardi Gras.
