The carnival of Cajamarca is, perhaps, the most representative party of the whole country. Thousands of people celebrate it year after year.

The carnival lasts several days, and we assure you that the celebration is the same every day. That is, people celebrate during all the days of the carnival.
Is probably the most important religious celebration of all the ports and coves of Peru. However, it develops with greater passion in Chimbote. On this festivity, a special program is followed that usually starts from June 19 until July 2. However, it should be noted that the central day is June 29. On this date, the Diocese of Chimbote carries out the Pilgrimage in the Sea. Here, thousands of chimbotanos and tourists accompany the patron San Pedrito to its traditional fishing route by the bay and islands.
The festival of the Virgen de la Candelaria is known nationally and is held in Puno. It is also celebrated in the Colca Valley, in Arequipa. It lasts 18 days, in which the faithful and dancers venerate the Virgen de la Candelaria. The cult possibly is associated with the pre-Hispanic vital rite to the Pachamama or Mother Earth. The central day is February 2; the virgin leaves the temple to tour the streets of Puno with thousands of folkloric demonstrations.
