Aruba Events

Aruba offers many different events throughout the calendar year. Aside from events that often accompany national holidays and traditional celebrations, your Aruba vacation may well coincide with international competitions and tournaments, sailing regattas and other sporting events. Furthermore annual film, music, art, and food festivals are held, along with other weekly cultural events.

One of Aruba's most famous events is the Aruba Carnival, which includes weeks of events that feature colorful decorated floats of all shapes and sizes, contagiously throbbing music, and parades with luxuriously costumed groups of celebrants of all ages, Carnival Queen elections and musical events such as the famous Tumba Festival and Calypso and Roadmarch competition. See the list Below for the Aruba Carnival Schedule and other helpful event lists.

Use our Aruba Events calendar to find events that coincide with your stay.

You can select a specific date, search by a range of dates, or search by name if you know what event you are interested in.
