Tenerife Fiestas in June 2017

Day of the carpets in La Orotava

There are no public holidays in Tenerife in June.

Local holidays in individual municipalities in June include:

  • 22 June: Infraoctava (the 8th day) of Corpus Christi in La Orotava.
  • 24 June: Festivity of San Juan in Los Silos and San Juan de la Rambla.
  • 29 June: Festivity of San Pedro Apóstol in El Sauzal and in Güímar.

As for celebrations, rest up at the beginning of the month as it gets busy all at once:

Güímar Pyramids, Tenerife

If previous years' events are repeated, then on Wednesday, 21st June 2017, you will be able to celebrate the Summer solstice at Güímar Pyramids and observe the orientation of the pyramids with the sunset on the horizon, and the famous “double sunset”. 

Floral carpets in the making in La Orotava

The Día de alfombras (Day of the Carpets) takes place in La Orotava this year on Thursday, 22nd June 2017. This the day that the townspeople decorate the streets of the town with temporary carpets made from petals and other floral materials, which are then walked on and destroyed by the religious procession in the early evening. It is truly one of the most beautiful spectacles and there is no substitute for being there in person and experiencing the ambience and the intoxicating aroma of millions of petals and several tons of toasted pine leaves that pervades the air.

Enrame de los chorros, Puerto de la Cruz

Also on Thursday, 22nd June 2017, pop down to Puerto de la Cruz, where you can see the Enrame de los chorros, where seven old public drinking fountains are decorated with floral and vegetable adornments.

Playa Jardin

The next evening, Friday, 23rd June 2017, on Playa Jardin, Punta Brava, Puerto de la Cruz, on the Eve of San Juan, the Noche de San Juan is celebrated, which brings together pagan rituals with a free open-air festival of music and bonfires on the beach. Yes, free. In Britain you'd pay hundreds of pounds for similar in a muddy field!



The following morning, on Saturday, 24th June 2017, watch the baño de las cabras as 300+ goats get their annual, ritual bath in the waters of the old fishing port in Puerto de la Cruz.

Fiesta San Juan, Puerto de la Cruz




Then on Sunday, 25th June 2017, La Orotava celebrates the wonderfully colourful Romería de San Isidro, one of the largest of these traditional pilgrimages, celebrated in the town ever since the second half of the 17th century.

And, finally, during the second half of June and into July, the Fiestas de San Pedro are celebrated on both the north and south of the island with various galas, music, folklore, etc. The principal areas where this fiesta is celebrated are in El Sauzal and in Güímar.
