The dates are march 2-9 I believe. I also have not been able to find any sort of schedule of events. I was there for it about 6 yrs ago and had a great time so we are going back again this year. There are several parades, with the biggest on the evening of Fat Tuesday (march 8). Other than that, last time I was there they had an entertainment stage, beer and food vendors set up in the square and it was hopping every night. Hopefully someone can add to this. Enjoy!

We're not going back til 2012. We are planning our trip around Carnival dates. (I already confirmed with our priest exactly what day Ash Wednesday is that year).

We did Carnival last year. We've decided that whenever we come to Coz, it'll be during the festival.

We will be there this yr for the first time during Carnival. Can't wait to see all the excitement but also wish there was a forum to get dates & times of events. Anyone find one please post here. Thanks.
