Parties that Last for a Month on Tenerife

There are so many fiestas and public holidays on Tenerife that we sometimes wonder when the local Canario population find the time to fit in work.

Most last from a couple of days to a week. However, the bigger traditional towns and cities (Santa Cruz, La Laguna, La Orotava, Los Realejos, Tacoronte etc.) throw shindigs that can last for almost a whole month. These are normally their ‘Fiestas Patronales’ where loads of events are laid on under the guise of celebrating the patron saint.

Puerto de la Cruz celebrates theirs in July, calling the whole shebang, quite simply, the July Fiestas.
