Romería of San Marcos in Tegueste



Sunday 29 April 2018 the Romería en Honor a San Marcos Evangelista takes place in Tegueste, as part of the Fiestas de San Marcos Evangelista en Tegueste.

This year sees the 50th edition of this popular romería, which has been celebrated in the town since 1969.

Headed up by the image of Saint Mark, there will be 23 carts and floats, accompanied by the four boats that are customary in the Tegueste celebrations, as well as the groups of musicians and dancers, including the Danza de las Flores (floral dance), which is the symbol of the traditions of the town, but is also so reminiscent of the Maypole dancing we know.

Tenerife Fiestas in April 2018

Easter having been early, April is fairly quiet in Tenerife this year, with no public holidays falling during the month. There are just the following Municipal Public Holidays:

On Monday, 23rd April 2018, Vilaflor is celebrating the Festivity of Hermano Pedro (Peter of Saint Joseph de Betancur) who was born in the town in 1626, became a missionary in Guatemala and was canonised as the "first Canarian and Guatemalan saint" in 2002.

Wednesday, 25th April 2018 the towns of Icod de los Vinos and Tegueste celebrate the Festivity of San Marcos Evangelista (St. Mark the Evangelist).

The biggest celebration of the month then is the Romería de San Marcos in Tegueste, which takes place on the last Sunday in April each year, thus 29 April 2018. The popular pilgrimage itself is what makes these somewhat profane fiestas striking. It is a procession of floats decorated with the natural produce of the countryside, carts, folklore groups from all the Islands, flocks of livestock, yoked oxen, dancers, etc. all accompanied by crowds of people in traditional dress.

April is Wine Month in Tegueste

As if wine needs it's very own month! One of the first events in Tegueste's wine month is the Ruta del Vino y la Tapa (Wine and Tapas Route), from 2 to 25 April and in which 20 bars and restaurants in the town are taking part. There are also special tourist events, as well as a Craft Fair in the Farmers' Market of Tegueste on 21 and 22 April.

Domingo de Resurrección



The celebration of Easter or Resurrection Sunday, this is from the processions taking place in La Laguna, Tenerife, celebrating the resurrection of Jesus from the dead.
