Rijeka Carnival Queen Pageant and Handover of the City Key

Rules must be followed, even during the unpredictable fifth season in Rijeka, and the rules state that before the carnival frenzy commences, carnival-goers have to officially take over the keys to the city and elect a new queen. The date is 19 January, the time 8 pm and the place is the “Dvorana mladosti” sports hall. Protocol dictates that the contestants prove they possess a plethora of royal qualities, which is a prerequisite for winning the “Golden Cape”, such as carnival spirit, familiarity with carnival customs, dancing, singing or another similar skill and, always important and even paramount, performing a choreographed routine with a supporting carnival group.

The one that emerges victorious will become the 23rd annual Rijeka Carnival Queen and representative of the Rijeka Carnival in Croatia and abroad over the course of a year. The pageant, accompanied by singing and dancing, will end with the official handover of the city key, which will symbolically mark the beginning of the month-long colourful, merry and everyone's favourite carnival chaos in Rijeka.

Children's Carnival Parade

Saturday, 27 January, is the day when the adults step aside in order for the kids to show them how to really have fun. On that day, Korzo will become a large open-air classroom where, as part of the Children's Carnival Parade class, singing, dancing and dressing up as one of thousands of fantastic characters will be taught to children whose creativity and joy will flood the entire street.

The parade begins at 1 pm, so head to Korzo to support and enjoy the creative costumes of a new generation of little carnival-goers in Rijeka. During the parade, face painting will be organised at several points in the city centre, while those that can’t get to Korzo that day can watch the Children's parade live on Kanal Ri or the Rijeka Carnival websites.
