Provisional Program for Carnival in Santa Cruz de Tenerife 2020

Carnival

We're making this up as we go along, though based on previous years, but provided that carnival in Santa Cruz de Tenerife continues to follow the usual schedule (and it would be tantamount to an act of sacrilege to suggest significant changes), events in 2020 might look like this. Obviously, any or all of this could be changed and any changes are beyond our control. We'll update as soon as the carnival organisers publish a calendar.

UPDATE: Journalist Humberto Gonar (EL DÍA) has also published a provisional calendar for Carnival 2020 on his website and this agrees with what I have listed below.

Highlighted are the events and parades in the streets.
