What is Kochi Carnival?

The vibrant kochi carnival, is all about enjoyment, fun in style as we step into New Year!!!

The main pillars of this carnival is participation, adventure, progress, peace and environment. It is famous for colorful costumes, street parades, decorated elephants, music, dance and much more,

Carnival is 

linked back to 16th century. During portugese colonization of the town, they marked the New Year with extravagant parties and celebrated with great pomp and show. Eventually, the concept of New Year celebrations ingrained itself there. However when Portuguese left the country for good, it trickled down and stopped.

The event was revived by three youngsters at Fort Kochi in 1984,as International Youth Year to mark the United Nations proclamation. During the course  Cochin Carnival was coined. The carnival emerged to become a merrymaking festival where people come together to have wholesome fun.

Celebration  commences on Dec 22nd and ends on Jan 1st with a massive procession on New Year’s Day through Fort Kochi. It is a celebration combining Christmas and New Year.

Food festivals, colorful rallies, processions and parades mark the streets of Fort Kochi on these days. There are drum beats and music blaring over the loudspeakers as everyone joins in the spirit of merrymaking and fun. At the zeroth hour on Jan 1st, the statue of old man is burnt, symbolizing the birth of New year leaving behind the evils.
