Shrove Tuesday Carnival Main Parade

Tuesday 5 March 2019, Shrove Tuesday, the Coso Apoteosis del Carnaval (Carnival Main Parade) takes place in Santa Cruz. The parade, which begins around 4pm, includes all of the carnival groups and more and takes several hours, culminating in a grand fireworks display. Here are edited highlights of the parade from last year.

If you'd like to see the complete TV coverage of last year's parade (still not the whole parade as it's only three and a half hours of it) click here.

Secret Tenerife has secured grandstand seats on the Avenida Marítima for the Coso in 2019, so we hope to bring you some photos of our own. These will be published via Instagram and shared on our Facebook page, on Pinterest and via Twitter.

Most Santa Cruz carnival events are televised via RTVE or RTVC, locally, nationally and internationally or recordings may be found on the CarnavalTVC Youtube channel.

All events are liable to change beyond our control.
