Tenerife Fiestas in July 2018



July has no public holidays in Tenerife, however there are a few municipalities that have local holidays, mostly for the celebrations and fiestas in their district:

10 Jul 18 Festival of the Virgen del Carmen Puerto de la Cruz
16 Jul 18 Festival of Nuestra Señora del Carmen Santiago del Teide
25 Jul 18 Festival of Santiago Apóstol Santiago del Teide
26 Jul 18 Festival of Santa Ana Candelaria, Garachico

The biggest events in July are the Fiestas del Carmen, the biggest of which is the Embarcación Virgen del Carmen (The Fishermen’s Fiesta) in Puerto de la Cruz, which this year takes place on Tuesday 10 July 2018.

There are various Romerías taking place during the month, and on July 25, the city of Santa Cruz will, once more, celebrate the trouncing of British Admiral Horatio Nelson, who tried unsuccessfully to conquer the island.

Fluent in Spanish and having spent 16 years on the island, Pamela Stocks has now been translating, researching and publishing information on customs and events in Tenerife for 25+ years. This takes a considerable amount of time and effort, for which she receives no payment whatsoever. If you find this work useful or interesting, please buy her a coffee. Buy Pamela Stocks a Coffee
