Courtessy of newspaper La Opinión de Tenerife, we can already bring you this Programa provisional del Carnaval de Santa Cruz de Tenerife 2019. This does not yet appear on the official carnival website, so whilst I'm pretty sure this is what the schedule will look like, some details could change, but it will hopefully give you a good idea for forward planning.
