Public Holidays in Tenerife in 2011

2011

The Government of the Canary Islands has approved the following list of the Public Holidays in the Canary Islands for 2011:

  • 1 January, Año Nuevo / New Year
  • 6 January, Epifanía del Señor / Epiphany
  • 2 FebruaryVirgen de la Candelaria / Candlemas
  • 21 April, Jueves Santo / Holy Thursday
  • 22 April, Viernes Santo / Good Friday
  • 30 May, Día de Canarias / Canaries Day
  • 15 August, Asunción de la Virgen / Assumption
  • 12 October, Fiesta Nacional de España / Spanish National Holiday
  • 1 November, Todos los Santos / All Saints
  • 6 December, Día de la Constitución Española / Day of the Spanish Constitution
  • 8 December, Inmaculada Concepción / Immaculate Conception
  • 26 December, Natividad del Señor / Day in lieu of Christmas Day

The two peculiarities in this list are that because Fiesta del Trabajo / Labour Day, May 1st falls on a Sunday, the day in lieu, rather than the next day, has been given as May 30th, for Día de Canarias / Canaries Day instead. Likewise, as Christmas Day in 2011 will also fall on a Sunday, December 26th has been given as a day in lieu. (Boxing Day isn’t a holiday in Spain.) There’s a legal right to days off on public holidays in Spain (there's no such right in Britain), however, you should note that the official working week in Spain consists of 6 days, Monday to Saturday, inclusive. To make up the 14 days public holidays decreed by law, two additional days are added that are specific to each municipal council area.

All events are liable to change beyond our control.
