Tenerife Fiestas in March 2019

One of the Maids of Honour from the Opening Parade of Carnival in Santa Cruz de Tenerife 2016

March 2019 is all about carnival in Tenerife

This month certainly kicks off with a bang as the Opening Parade for Carnival in Santa Cruz de Tenerife takes place on the evening of Friday 1 March 2019. There are no national public holidays this month, but most municipalities have the day off for my birthday, Shrove Tuesday, the main day of carnival in Santa Cruz de Tenerife on Tuesday 5 March 2019. It's carnival in the streets of Santa Cruz through to Sunday 10 March 2019.

Meanwhile, Puerto de la Cruz Carnival takes place more or less simultaneously with the main events from Saturday 2 to Sunday 10 March 2019.

The town of Los Silos also has a space in its March agenda to celebrate Carnival, from 4 to 10 March, with their crazy car race on Saturday 9th as one of the most fun events.

This year the Carnival of Candelaria is celebrated from 9 to 23 March, with the gala for the election of the queen on the 15th, the choreographic festival and daytime carnival on the 17th, the drag quuen gala on the 22nd and the carnival dance on the 23rd.

The Piñata Chica, which is what carnival is called in Tacoronte, is a party where the little ones can enjoy themselves to the max from March 15 to 18, highlighting also the traditional concentration of classic cars that will occur on the 17th.

Carnival in Los Gigantes takes place from 15th to 23rd March 2019.

Dedicated to Cuba, Carnival 2019 in Grandilla de Abona will commence on March 15, with the opening parade, and continue with the Daytime Carnival on Saturday 16; the Grand Gala for the Election of the Carnival Queen on Friday the 22nd; El Coso (main parade) on the 23rd and, it will be concluded, on March 24th with the Burial of the Sardine.

Only one Romería taking place this month, on Saturday 16 March 2019, the Pilgrimage in Honor of San José in Barranco Hondo, Candelaria.

Tuesday, 19th March 2019 is Día del Padre (Father's Day) in Spain. In Catholic Europe, it has been celebrated on 19 March (St. Joseph's Day) since the Middle Ages

And Los Cristianos Carnival rounds of the month from 21 March to 1 April.
