Carnaval lasts 40 + days in Uruguay. If you want to see the largest parades, dates are on this page: https://www.guruguay.com/montevideo-carnival-2024-dates/. You’ll miss the carnival parade which takes places in January, but you could make it for Las Llamadas which, IMO, is much more interesting and festive, and you don’t need to speak Spanish to understand what is going on.

I will be in Montevideo for the opening of the Carnival on the 25th January. Can anyone suggest the best place to watch the parade. I don't mind paying extra if there is a particular good spot or venue to watch if from

Thanks for sharing the link. Unfortunately, I could not tell where and when carnival will actually be celebrated during the 40 day period. I'd love to see this. Can you share more information? Is there another website I could look at that would share when the individual carnivals will be happening? Thank you!

Hi there. We'll be in Montevideo 1-5 March. I know we'll have missed the bigger parades, but can anyone point me to a schedule where I can find whether anything (eg tablados) will still be on during those days? Or is it still TBC based on weather and potential rescheduling? I can't find this online anywhere. Thanks!
