carnivale acireale sicily 2016

Does any one know the dates for Carnivale in Acireale 2016? What would be the preferred or best days/nights for the float parades or do they occur each night? Should hotel dates be booked as soon as possible?

many thanks Bill Carroll

Hi billcarroll289,

The TI in Acireale has indicated that an exact date hasn't yet been set, and it's not expected for at least a month, and perhaps even two months.

Ciao!

OK, little choice but to wait. We wanted to take advantage of Air Emirates winter flights from JFK to Milano for about $660.00. Sale ends 6 Sept. Perhaps another sale. Also looking at the Almond festival in Agrigento, believe the first Sunday in Feb. Thanks so much for the inquiry with Acireale TI. Bill C

It was my pleasure Bill C!

You can estimate the dates, and lock sale rates.

Quite surprised no dates have been announced yet.

Really want to try and make this next year.

The dates for the Carnevale in Sciacca only became official about 2-3 weeks ago:

Feb 6 to 9 (per usual), with the newly added week-end after (13/14).

There is a bit of a worry about the extended week-end addition: the concern being how well the papier mâché figures will hold up... personally, I suspect that the second week-end will attract more the 'party hardy' types, since the traditional event schedule is the week-end leading up to Shrove Tuesday (Feb. 6 to 9 in 2016).
