Tenerife Fiestas in November

November 1st is a Public Holiday for Día de Todos los Santos (All Saints Day), when it’s customary to visit the tombs of one’s departed, clean up and replace the flowers.

On November 29th, the eve of St. Andrew’s Day, the Fiestas of San Andres are celebrated in Icod de los Vinos, with an event unique to the Canary Islands, called the Tablas de San Andrés – kinda kamikazi sledding down near vertical streets on boards. Meanwhile in Puerto de la Cruz, it’s popularly known as the Fiesta of Pots or Chestnuts. Kids drag strings of tin cans and scrap metal around the streets to make as much noise as possible and the “Castañada” (chestnut feast) is held in the town’s main Plaza del Charco square.
