Theme of the year

Once upon a time there was a carnival in a small kingdom up North. People travelled  to the carnival from near and far, for they had heard that this was a place where you could dance in the streets and dress up in whatever clothes you like...

The theme for Aalborg Carnival 2018 is: By land, at sea and in the air...



Inspiration for your costume

In collaboration with Smiffy's, we have compiled a list where you can buy, or find inspirations for, your TABOO-costume.

Find inspiration on our Theme page.
