Santa Cruz de Tenerife Carnaval 2011

Carnival 2011 in Santa Cruz de Tenerife

The main events of Carnival in Santa Cruz de Tenerife 2011:
  • Friday, March 4th: Santa Cruz Carnaval takes to the streets, with the Cabalgata Anunciadora (Opening Parade) from 7 p.m.
  • Saturday, March 5th: Ministry of Sound at Tenerife Carnaval. 11 p.m. – 6 a.m.
  • Tuesday, March 8th: (Carnaval Tuesday): The Coso Apoteosis (Main Parade) along the front at Santa Cruz (Avenidas de Francisco La Roche and Marítima), from around 4 p.m. 
  • Ash Wednesday, March 9th: Burial of the Sardine. Where it’s essential for men to dress up as "Widows" to mourn the poor old defunct sardine and generally have a blasphemous night of it. The funeral procession is along the following streets; Juan Pablo II, Méndez Núñez, Pilar, Villalba Hervás, La Marina ending in the Avenida Francisco La Roche. The sardine is then cremated, followed by yet another firework display.
  • Saturday, March 12th: Carnaval de Día (Daytime Carnaval) is a new phenomenon to Santa Cruz in recent years, featuring live music and dancing around the city’s squares; Plaza de la Candelaria, Plaza del Príncipe, Plaza de Europa & Plaza Weyler, plus an ear-splittingly noisy tracas/mascletas of firework explosions, in the style of the Fallas de Valencia. The Coso Infantil (Junior Parade) takes place at 6 p.m., with the route as follows: Francisco La Roche, Avenida Marítima ending in Alameda del Duque de Santa Elena.
  • Sunday, March 13th: Sunday morning, 10 a.m. begins an exhibition of Automóviles Antiguos, which is when some beautiful classic cars gather at the Parque García Sanabria to parade around the city from mid-day.
Those are the main events that you could be interested in seeing. After those you still have all the fun of the fair to be had, dancing to a wide variety of orchestras and sound systems in the streets, a veritable mountain of street food to enjoy, after parties and much more.
