Tenerife Fiestas in April 2019

Representación de La Pasión (Passion of Jesus) in Adeje

Carnival 2019 finally comes to an end with the Burial of the Sardine on 1 April in Los Cristianos and so, we quickly move on to the events of Semana Santa (Easter).

Sunday 14 April 2019Domingo de Ramos (Palm Sunday). The parades on this day have been described as "happy and less crowded celebrations" than those later in the week. 

Thursday 18 April is a Public Holiday in the Canary Islands for Holy Thursday.

Friday 19 April is a National Public Holiday for Good Friday, the biggest events of which are the Representación de La Pasión (Passion of Jesus) in Adeje and the various processions and the Cofradías y hermandades (Brotherhoods) in La Laguna.

Easter Monday is not a public holiday in Spain nor the Canary Islands.

Thursday 25 April is a public holiday at municipal level in the municipality of Icod de los Vinos for Festival of San Marcos Evangelista (St. Mark the Evangelist), the Patron of the town, as it is in Tegueste. April is also Wine Month in Tequeste.

Saturday 27 April the Camino del Hermano Pedro an annual pilgrimage from Vilaflor to El Médano is scheduled to take place.

Sunday 28 April the Romería Chica in El Tanque is scheduled, however, there is a General Election in Spain that day (Spain's PM calls snap general election for 28 April) and other events, including the annual Pilgrimage of San Marcos Evangelista in Tegueste that usually takes place in April, have been postponed, so I can't be certain on that one.

Monday 29 April is a municipal holiday for the Festival of Santo Hermano Pedro in Vilaflor.

On the rally calendar there is the Rallysprint Atogo on 6 & 7 April, the Los Loros Hillclimb on 13 April and the Arico Hillclimb on 27 April
