The Solsona Carnival, as we know it today, has become the most popular festival in the city and one of the celebrations of the carnival parties that enjoys more personality, character and tradition in the country.

Solsona, which was already celebrating Carnival before the Civil War, was the first population in the State to recover it in 1971, despite being a party prohibited by the Franco dictatorship and General Franco still being alive. That year, censorship was mocked, making it think it was a Major Winter Festival, but on that cold Sunday in February, the Carnival King returned to Solsona after more than 30 years. Even a satirical sermon was read against the rulers in Catalan as it had been done before the ban, yes, this time above a moving car in case the grays appeared and had to escape!

Since that year and until today, 50 years have passed . During all this time, the solsonins have been twisting the party until obtaining a set of acts of the Solsoni Carnival based on mockery and exaggeration, in a context of mockery and humor. Proof we have the elements such as the Crazy Giants, the Colgada del Burro in the bell tower (pioneer among the other populations that also perform it), the act of Figs, cake and white wine, contradanzas, the Arrival of His Majesty the Carnival, Children's Carnival...

In addition, this party is organized by the people through the Solsona Carnival Party Association, which guarantees the freedom to express and criticize those who govern and free themselves from any institutional burden. For this reason, it is a lively, popular party for everyone and everyone.
