Carnaval Vegano (La Vega Carnival) is the Dominican Republic’s oldest, biggest, and most popular carnival.
The Dominican Republic celebrates carnival every weekend in February. Celebrations of patron saint Nuestra Señora de la Altagracia, founding father Juan Pablo Duarte, and Dominican Independence Day are blended in, making February one long Dominican party.
Every little town celebrates with their own unique traditions.
