Santa Cruz' Carnival 2017 continues on Ash Wednesday, 1st March with the Burial of the Sardine. This curious tradition signifies the end of the carnival celebrations and excesses and the arrival of lent, although carnival continues on until the weekend in the north and then moves to the south of the island, where carnivals take place this month: Los Gigantes runs from March 9th - March 18th, while Los Cristianos carnival is from March 17th - March 27th

Sunday, 19th March 2017 is Día del Padre (Father's Day). In Catholic Europe, it has been celebrated on March 19 (St. Joseph's Day) since the Middle Ages.

There are no public holidays nor local public holidays this month.
