Carnaval Opening Parade Santa Cruz de Tenerife 2011

For my money, this is one of the best slices of Tenerife carnaval you’ll ever see, because it doesn’t just show you a parade, it lets you live the atmosphere.

You can hear the all the different sounds; the music, the batucadas of the drums and the noise of the crowd mingling together. You can also see how the public and the parade are not separated, making this a participation event, not merely a spectator sport, which, for me, is an important distinction between Tenerife’s totally accessible carnival and others where one would be a mere onlooker.


Fluent in Spanish and having spent 16 years on the island, Pamela Stocks has now been translating, researching and publishing information on customs and events in Tenerife for 25+ years. This takes a considerable amount of time and effort, for which she receives no payment whatsoever. If you find this work useful or interesting, please buy her a coffee. Buy Pamela Stocks a Coffee
