The government of the Canary Islands has announced the dates of public holidays 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)

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.
