Holidays & Festivals in Santa Marta

Like anyplace along the coast, pre-Lenten Carnaval is celebrated by Samarios (Santa Marta residents) with comparsas (dance troupes) and a flurry of corn starch, spray foam and water. Be ready to dance, dodge and party. The feast days of the Virgen del Carmen are observed in Santa Marta and neighboring villages, culminating on July 16. A special feature is a flotilla from Taganga to Santa Marta and El Rodadero. The city’s patron saint, Saint Martha, is commemorated with processions on July 29. Every year Santa Marta hosts a Fiesta del Mar, which may occur in June, July or September.
