Salvadoran cultural celebrations
El Salvador has an annual calendar full of celebrations, from Semana Santa (Holy Week) to saints’ feast days and Independence Day, in mid-September. One of the most colorful and memorable is the country’s own iteration of Carnaval, billed as El Salvador’s biggest party. Pageants, parades, music, and dancing are all part of the celebration.
