Lundakarnivalen takes place every four years and is organised by Lund's students. Around 5000 students become carnivalists and help create the carnival. During the carnival days, Lundagård is transformed into a large carnival area with tented fun, tombola stalls, student sex, radio broadcasts, performers and of course food and drink. In addition, a carnival procession will pass through the streets of Lund, spreading carnival joy to all the 400,000 or so visitors. The first Lundakarnivalen was held in 1849 and has entertained generations of carnivalists and visitors ever since.
There are many opportunities to get involved in the carnival and at the beginning of the spring term 2022 there will be a call for people to register their interest in becoming a carnivalist!
