The event lacked official sponsorship and was organized solely by citizens through social media calls for participation. Despite authorities disclaiming sponsorship, it proceeded as planned. But before we dive into the festivities, let's reflect on the past.
The Thessaloniki Carnival Parade boasts a vibrant history rooted in cultural celebration. Dating back to the early 20th century, it evolved from local customs and traditions into a grand spectacle attracting thousands of participants and spectators. Initially celebrated with modest street festivities, it grew over the years, reflecting the city's diverse influences and vibrant spirit. 


During its early years, the carnival provided an opportunity for social commentary and satire, often mocking political figures and societal norms. However, it also served as a platform for community bonding and expression, showcasing the city's rich cultural heritage through music, dance, and elaborate costumes.

We hope in the future the event is going to be officially organised so it can gather more participants.
