Comparsa Río Orinoco



One of my favourite components of carnival, comparsas in Santa Cruz de Tenerife are said to be similar to the Brazillian Carnival Blocks, but actually appear to have more in common with the dancing, marching and drumming Samba Schools that have a strong community basis and are traditionally associated with a particular neighborhood.

Founded in 1988, Comparsa Río Orinoco have their home in the district of La Higuerita in San Cristóbal de La Laguna.

Tenerife Fiestas in November 2019

Add caption

The month starts with a National Public Holiday on the 1st November for Todos los Santos (All Saints Day), when people lay flowers on the graves of deceased relatives. There are few religious days that mean quite so much to the people of Spain and the Canary Islands and more flowers are sold for All Saints Day than for Valentines Day. 

The biggest event in the annual rally calendar, the Isle of Tenerife Rally, takes place this year on Saturday 16 November 2019. There are also two hillclimbs in the month; Icod-La Guancha on 2 November and San Miguel on 23 November.



Rally Isla Tenerife 2018

The only municipal holiday is 25 November for the Festival of Santa Catalina in Tacoronte. 

The biggest celebrations are on 29 November on the Eve of San Andrés (Saint Andrew's Day), in Icod de los Vinos with their Tablas de San Andrés and in Puerto de la Cruz with the Fiesta del cacharro y la castaña (Fiesta of the pots and chestnuts).
