Tenerife Fiestas in January 2018

Romería de San Antonio in Tigaiga, Los Realejos

January begins with two public holidays; on 1 January for New Year's Day, of course, and 6 January for Epiphany after the annual arrival of Los Reyes (The Three Kings) the night before. The following two municipal holidays take place this January: 

18 Jan Festival of Nuestra Señora de la Esperanza La Guancha
22 Jan Festival of San Vicente Los Realejos

The main celebrations taking place during the month, apart from the parades of the Three Kings in almost every town of any size on the island on the night of 5 January, are the fiestas of San Antonio Abad in La Matanza, Los Silos and Buenavista del Norte on the 3rd or 4th Sundays in January, with the first romería of the year - the Romería de San Antonio in Tigaiga, Los Realejos - taking place on the Sunday nearest to 17 January.

There are also the Fiestas Patronales and the Romería de San Antonio Abad at around the same time in Arona. Whilst in La Caleta in Adeje, there is the Festival of San Sebastián on 19 and 20 January, more photos and information about which can be found at the following reports: Fiesta San Sebastián na Teneryfie and Festival of San Sebastian.
