July is another month with no national public holidays in Tenerife, although there are the following local Municipal Public Holidays in the districts mentioned.
  • 11 July: Festivity of the Virgen del Carmen in Puerto de la Cruz
  • 25 July: Festivity of Santiago Apóstol in Santiago del Teide
  • 26 July: Santa Ana in Candelaria, Garachico and Santiago del Teide
  • 31 July: Fiestas del Carmen in Los Realejos
The biggest events of July each year are the Fiestas del Carmen held in Puerto de la Cruz. Thousands of people gather to watch the Virgin as she's carried by fishermen onto one of the boats before setting sail on a maritime procession. 

Fiestas and Romerías taking place this month include:
  • 9 July: (Second Sunday) Romería of San Benito Abad in La Laguna
  • 11 July: Fiestas del Gran Poder de Dios and the Virgen del Carmen (a.k.a. July Fiestas) in Puerto de la Cruz. The Fiestas run right through from 1st - 30th July, but the big day for the Embarkation takes place this year on Tuesday, 11th July. (Always the Tuesday before the 16th.)
  • 16 July: Fiestas del Carmen in Los Realejos and Santa Cruz
  • 25 July: Fiestas of Santa Ana in Candelaria
  • 25 July: Fiestas of Santiago Apóstol in Los Realejos
  • 25 July: Commemoration of the Battle of Santa Cruz in Santa Cruz 
  • 27 July: Fiestas of San Cristóbal in San Cristóbal de La Laguna
25 July 1797 was a key date for the history of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, the Island's capital city. This was the day when a major battle broke out against the troops of the British Admiral Horatio Nelson, who tried unsuccessfully to conquer Tenerife, commemorated with a re-enactment of the naval battle.
