Tenerife's Public Holidays in 2010

2010

The Spanish government has today published the labour calendar for 2010, which in the Canaries will include the following 10 public holidays:

  • 1 January - New Year (Año Nuevo)
  • 6 January - Epiphany / Three Kings Day (Epifanía)
  • 1 April - Easter Thursday (Jueves Santo)
  • 2 April - Good Friday (Viernes Santo)
  • 1 May - Labour Day (Fiesta del Trabajo)
  • 12 October - National Day (Fiesta Nacional de España)
  • 1 November - All Saints (Todos los Santos)
  • 6 December - Constitution Day (Día de la Constitución)
  • 8 December - Immaculate Conception (Inmaculada Concepción)
  • 25 December - Christmas Day (Natividad del Señor).

In addition to these there are another two Canarian specific holidays (May 30th, for Día de Canarias (Canaries Day) and 15 August, Asunción de la Virgen (Assumption of Mary), plus another holiday specific to each island, which in Tenerife is: 2 February, Virgen de la Candelaria (Candlemas) and then a couple more that are specific to each municipal council area (for instance, Santa Cruz always declares Carnival Tuesday (Shrove Tuesday) as a holiday in the city - in 2010, Carnival Tuesday falls on February 16th.)

Although, in Spain, there is a legal right to the days off on public holidays (there's no such right in Britain), if you work in the tourist sector, it's pretty unlikely you will! If you have business to do in Town Halls, banks, etc., they'll be shut on these days. If you're visiting, don't worry tourist provisions carry on as normal.
