Components of Carnival in 2019

Carnival Maid of Honour 2012

Now that all of the carnival contests are complete, these are the different carnival components that we'll be seeing in the various carnival parades in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, starting on Friday 1 March 2019 with the Cabalgata Anunciadora (Opening Parade).


And those are just the ones from the long list of contests in the run up to carnival hitting the street. So many other things form part of carnival too, including the rondallas, carnival floats and decorated cars, personalites, fireworks displays, vintage and classic cars, all of the performing artists, the funfair, food and drink kiosks and of course, the many thousands of members of the public who turn up night after night in costume.

There are 102 carnival groups in all this year; 21 adult murgas; 10 adult comparsas; nine rondallas; 25 musical groups; two lyrical groups; 19 junior murgas; two junior comparsas; and 14 correographed dance troops. Over the course of carnival 2019, we'll try to bring you something of all of them.

As well as the parades and performances at the Daytime Carnival events on Sunday 3 March and Saturday 9 March, there will also be performances by various carnival groups on Saturday 2 March, Monday 4 March and Sunday 10 March in the staging areas of the Plaza del Príncipe, Avenida Francisco de la Roche and Plaza de la Candelaria, as well as in the Parque Bulevar. Times to be published on the carnival website.
