Carnaval Outreach


Welcome to one of our wildest mission trips ever.


400,000 people. 7 Days. 1 person: Jesus. Come join us in 2021!

Said to be the third largest Carnaval celebration in the world, tens of thousands of people bombard the city each year ready to enjoy the festival. As one of YWAM Mazatlan’s mission trips, this outreach has a mandate to ‘transform Mazatlan one party at a time’. We invite teams from around the world, as well as the local churches to partner with us as we plunge head first into the 6 day festival. Our Carnaval outreach is broad and focused on children, youth, and adults. Performing arts, skate and graffiti competitions, free coffee and hair cuts, are just a few ways YWAM Mazatlan demonstrates the love of God to this major event.

Who is Carnaval Outreach for?

This outreach is for just about anyone who wants to share the love of Christ with others! We invite youth groups, outreach teams from other YWAM campuses, families, individuals, school alumni, and everyone in between. Our outreach time is for anyone who wants an extremely unique and full-on experience on the mission field, during this once-a-year event!

In particular, Carnaval outreach is a perfect option when looking for mission trips for college students, church groups, or really anyone looking to do a missions trip to Mexico!
