Tenerife Carnival Dates for 2017

Carnival 2017 in Santa Cruz de Tenerife

With the big carnivals in 2016 in the north now over, some of the smaller ones happening this coming weekend and only Los Cristianos International Carnival still to come in March, here are the predicted dates of the main events of carnivals in Tenerife in 2017.

Santa Cruz

  • Wednesday, February 22nd, 2017 - Election of the Carnaval Queen
  • Friday, February 24th, 2017 - Carnaval Opening Parade
  • Tuesday, February 28th, 2017 - Main Parade
  • Wednesday, March 1st, 2017 - Burial of the Sardine
  • Saturday, March 4th, 2017 - Daytime Carnaval
  • Sunday, March 5th, 2017 - Parade of Vintage Cars





Puerto de la Cruz
  • Thursday, February 23rd, 2017 - Election of the Carnival Queen
  • Saturday, February 25th, 2017 - Proclamatory Parade
  • Wednesday, March 1st, 2017 - Burial of the Sardine
  • Friday, March 3rd, 2017 - Men´s Marathon in High Heels
  • Saturday, March 4th, 2017 - Main Parade

Los Gigantes

We calculate that the 4 main days of the Los Gigantes Carnaval 2017 should run from Friday, 10th March 2017 to Monday, 13th March 2017, thus: 
  • Friday, March 10th, 2017: Election of the Queen, Infant and/or Adult. 
  • Saturday, March 11th, 2017: Kid’s activities
  • Sunday, March 12th, 2017: Main parade from 5pm.
  • Monday, March 13th, 2017: Burial of the Sardine from 9pm.
Dates of Los Gigantes Carnival 2017 are as follows (info from Tourist Office) (Via)

This year it will be held over 2 weekends

1st weekend

  • Fri March 10th - Election of the Queen
  • Sat March 11th - Childrens events
  • Sunday March 12th - Grand Parade


2nd weekend

  • Fri March 17th - Sardine parade/Fireworks
  • Sat March 18th - Family events


(Really just the Burial of the Sardine transferring from the Monday night to the Friday, which makes a lot of sense really, with some more family events thrown in.)

Güímar 
  • Friday, March 10th, 2017 - Las Burras de Güímar 

Carnaval being pretty sacrosanct, it’s fairly unlikely that this pattern will ever be significantly changed (weather excepting), but I do have to add that any changes will be outside of my control. Thus, use this information as a guide, but where it is crucial (affects flight bookings, etc.), it is your own responsibility to double check nearer the time.

Los Cristianos (Arona)

As we said last year, there's absolutely no way of predicting (save crystal ball maybe) the dates of Los Cristianos carnival. We are very lucky that we had some notice this year and even a full programme of this year's events, but that's by no means guaranteed in future.

All I can say is that when I know, I will post the dates and details here.

UPDATE: Los Cristianos carnival will be held between 17 and 27 March 2017.

If you wish to be informed when information about Los Cristianos Carnival 2017 becomes available, may I suggest that you subscribe to our email updates, or our news feed, follow our Facebook page, or our Twitter tweets, or all of them, or whichever is your preference, as whatever I post here will also be posted to all of those social media.

Thanks so much for that Janet, I hadn't had time to research due to house moving.
