Tenerife’s official public holidays for 2015

The government of the Canaries has announced the dates of public holidays for the islands for 2015.

- 1 January (Año Nuevo/New Year’s Day)
- 6 January (Epifanía del Señor/Epihany)
- 2 April  (Jueves Santo/Easter Thursday)
- 3 April (Viernes Santo/Easter Friday)
- 1 May (Fiesta del Trabajo/Workers’ Day)
- 30 May (Día de Canarias/Canarian Day)
- 15 August (Asunción de la Virgen/Assumption)
- 12 October (Fiesta Nacional de España/Spain Day)
- 2 November (Todos los Santos/All Saints Day)
- 8 December (Inmaculada Concepción/Immaculate Conception)
- 25 December (Natividad del Señor/Christmas Day)

The above dates are the public holidays for all the Canaries.

Each island also has an additional day of it’s own, which in Tenerife’s case is 2 February (Candlemass – the Presentation of Jesus at the Temple or Feast of the Purification of the Virgin) for the island’s patron saint’s day, the Virgen de la Candelaria, bringing the number of public holidays to 12.

Then, in addition to this, each municipality has a further 2 local days (details still to be advised), bringing the total up to 14. These latter vary greatly and, as Janet says, it’s all of these that make it seem as if the whole of Tenerife is constantly on holiday.
