Tenerife Fiestas in July 2019

Gesta de 25 Julio 1797

July has no national, regional or island-wide public holidays, but the following municipal public holidays in the following districts:

  • 9 July: Festival of the Virgen del Carmen in Puerto de la Cruz.
  • 25 July: Festival of Santiago Apóstol in Santiago de Teide.
  • 26 July: Festival of Santa Ana in Candelaria, Garachico and Santiago de Teide.

The three biggest events of the month will be:

  • The Romería Regional de San Benito Abad in La Laguna, said to be the most representative romeria of the Canary Islands, which is held the second Sunday of July each year - this year on Sunday 14 July.
  • The Embarkation of the Virgen del Carmen in Puerto de la Cruz usually takes place on the Tuesday prior to 16 July - this year actually on Tuesday 16 July. The effigy of the Virgin del Carmen is carried through the streets to the harbour, where it is then boarded onto a boat, for a “sea parade” and a ceremony to bless local fishermen. 
  • Around 25 July, Santa Cruz will reenact the Battle of Santa Cruz de Tenerife (1797) and celebrate its proud victory over English Admiral, Horatio Nelson, whose failed attempt on the city, 222 years ago, cost him his right arm. 

All events are liable to change beyond our control.
