2020 Carnival Date is Announced

Carnival Announcement

Dear friends,


We have already decided to announce the program date of the year 2020 in order for our domestic and foreign guests and tourism agencies to make their plans


2020 Nisan`da Adana`da - 8th International Orange Blossom Carnival will be held in Adana between April 3-12th. The Carnival Parade and the official opening ceremony will be held on Saturday, April 4th, 2020.


All events (cultural, arts, sports, etc.) that will take place in the carnival program and will start on 3 April 2020 and will be organized according to the evaluation of event applications, will be announced to you as the carnival date approaches (as of March 2020).


Even though it is too early for the details of the events to take place during the carnival, we wanted to share the draft event program in advance so that participants that will com from the other cities and abroad will be able to plan their schedule in advance.



For those who wish to experience the enthusiasm of the street carnival, the most intense participation will be on Friday, April 3rd, Saturday, April 4th, 2020 and Sunday, April 5th, 2020. We recommend the Crowded Carnival dates of April 3rd to 5th for those who are looking for intense enthusiasm between the events. For those who want to experience the pleasure of being in Adana in April during the quiet period with less activities, we recommend that they do a plan for the Calm Carnival Period between 6-12 April. In addition, we expect that the streets of Adana will smell like orange blossoms in the period from 1 to 20 April, although it changes seasonally.


Please do not forget; the important thing is to enjoy the pleasure of being in Adana in April.


A short footnote: We have noted all the criticisms from you. We also evaluated all the criticisms in the brainstorming meeting held with the Governor and Metropolitan Municipality. We would like to announce in advance that plans will be made for the measures to be taken against regarding the issues such as traffic, stands, parade, drummers, environmental cleaning and so on..


We will share the details of the Carnival Event Program with our official social media accounts in March 2020.


Best regards,

Nisan`da Adana`da Committee
