Lundakarnevalen is a quadrennial carnival arranged by the students of Lund. Lund University Student Unions are the head/the mandators of Lundakarnevalen. Lundakarnevalen is also a recognized student association of the Academic Society. During the last Lundakarnevalen more than 5000 students volunteered to build the carnival of all carnivals with around 400 000 visitors during the carnival weekend. During the days of Lundakarnevalen, all of Lund transforms into an area filled with festivities such as “tentertainments”, game stands, humoristic student plays, radio broadcasting and of course beverages and food. Also, there is a carnival parade marching through the streets of Lund, spreading karnevalistic joy to all visitors - last time estimated to approximately 400 000!
