Tenerife's Public Holidays for 2019


The Canarian Government approved the calendar of public holidays for 2019, which amount to 14 days, nine of which are National holidays and are as follows:

– 1 January (Año Nuevo/New Year) 
– 7 January (Epifanía del Señor/Epihany - the Monday in leiu)
– 2 February (Tenerife’s own day to honour patron Virgen de la Candelaria)
– 18 April (Jueves Santo/Easter Thursday)
– 19 April (Viernes Santo/Easter Friday) 
– 1 May (Fiesta del Trabajo/Workers’ Day)
– 30 May (Día de Canarias/Canaries Day)
– 15 August (Asunción de la Virgen/Assumption)
– 12 October (Fiesta Nacional de España/Spain Day)
– 1 November (Todos los Santos/All Saints Day)
– 6 December (Día de la Constitución Española/Constitution Day)
– 25 December (Natividad del Señor/Christmas Day)

Nine of those are "fixed" National Fiestastwo are decided at regional level in the Canary Islands, then each island also has an additional day of it’s own, which in Tenerife’s case is 2 February for Candlemass – for the island’s patron’s day, the Virgen de la Candelaria, bringing the number of public holidays in 2019 to 12. Each municipality will then declare a further 2 local days (details to follow), making the total of 14. 

(The Inmaculada Concepción (Immaculate Conception) on 8 December, isn't a public holiday in 2019 as it already falls on a Sunday.)
