» Dunkirk Carnival

Lasting three whole months, from January to the end of April, Dunkerque’s heart beats to the rhythm of the carnival. Prepare to meet locals wearing wigs, stockings and short dresses (mostly men!) and to dance, sing and enjoy a drink with them. Don't miss the ‘3 joyeuses’ or the ‘rigodon’, highlights of this non-stop party. Originally intended to celebrate the beginning of the cod-fishing season, it's now a point of local pride and an event not to be missed.
