The Carnival Fuerteventura, La Oliva is back on the 7th of March! An
event awaited by all, where we offer a wide program of performances to enjoy,
starting on the 7th with the anniversary of the Murga los Garabatos, the little
ones are the protagonists. 

Carnival Fuerteventura perfect for children

The children’s Murga “Los Garabatos” has been in existence for 30 years. They belong to the Cultural Association Datsimaal, which emerged as a neighbourhood group more than 100 years ago in the village of Villaverde (La Oliva). It is a real non-profit association, at a cultural, educational and leisure level for all the neighbours.
