Tenerife's Public Holidays for 2020

Get ready to plan!

The Canarian Government has approved the calendar of public holidays for 2020:

  • 1 January (Año Nuevo/New Year) 
  • 6 January (Epifanía del Señor/Epihany - the Monday in leiu)
  • 9 April (Jueves Santo/Easter Thursday)
  • 10 April (Viernes Santo/Easter Friday) 
  • 1 May (Fiesta del Trabajo/Workers’ Day)
  • 30 May (Día de Canarias/Canaries Day)
  • 15 August (Asunción de la Virgen/Assumption)
  • 7 September (Bajada de la Virgen del Socorro)
  • 12 October (Fiesta Nacional de España/Spain Day)
  • 7 December (Día de la Constitución Española/Constitution Day) - Monday in lieu as 6 December falls on a Sunday. 
  • 8 December (Inmaculada Concepción/Immaculate Conception)
  • 25 December (Natividad del Señor/Christmas Day)

As November 1, Todos los Santos (All Saints), falls on a Sunday in 2020, this has been replaced with May 30, Canary Islands Day. Also, as the usual Tenerife specific holiday, for the Virgen de la Candelaria (Candlemass) on February 2 also falls on a Sunday in 2020, 7 September for the Bajada de la Virgen del Socorro has been substituted.

There’s a legal right to days off on public holidays in Spain (there's no such right in Britain), however, you should note that the official working week in Spain consists of 6 days, Monday to Saturday, inclusive. To make up the 14 days public holidays decreed by law, two additional days are added that are specific to each municipal council area.

All events are liable to change beyond our control.
