Los Gigantes Carnaval 2015

Carnival 2015 in Los Gigantes

Here’s a rare opportunity to plan ahead, thanks to the Department of Tourism at the Town Hall of Santiago del Teide, who confirmed to me this morning, by email, that the dates for Carnaval in Los Gigantes in 2015 will be from 27th February to 2nd March. Their email confirmed what my own research suggested, from which, I believe we can extrapolate the dates for future years also. I obtained this information in response to a request from a reader, but it may be of interest to others too, so here goes.

Researching online, for the dates of the Los Gigantes Carnaval over the last few years to see if there was a pattern, I found that, whilst the start has been moved forward sometimes to incorporate additional events, the core four days does form a regular pattern, starting on the Friday, nine days after Shrove Tuesday and you can find a full list of the dates of Shrove Tuesday and Santa Cruz Carnaval here.

The “any year” program for Los Gigantes Carnaval, thus follows (roughly):
  • Friday: Election of the Queen, Infant and/or Adult. 
  • Saturday: Kid’s activities
  • Sunday: Main parade from 5pm.
  • Monday: Burial of the Sardine from 9pm.

The dates of Los Gigantes Carnaval for the next few years, therefore we can estimate (2015’s is confirmed), provided they follow the same pattern, to be:
