COVID-19 CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

Even with the start of the 'new normality' on 21 June 2020, popular fiestas and most large gatherings and events are still prohibited and social distancing guidelines still in force. Dates listed on this site, therefore, are still subject to cancellation or change and we will update, where we can, when any new information is made available.

Santa Cruz Tenerife Carnival Program 2020

Carnival

UPDATE 10/01/2020 - What's listed below has now been confirmed as the official carnival program. A PDF version [in Spanish] can be downloaded from the carnival website, which adds the locations and times of events.

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.

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.
