Also taking place this weekend, there are:

Oktoberfest 2019 Puerto de la Cruz

Finally, Puerto de la Cruz, between 26 August and 1 September, is celebrating its 46th annual  Semana Bávara (Bavarian Week) and Oktoberfest in the Plaza de Europa on 30 and 31 August and 1 September. (Yes, we know it's not October / Octubre!)

The Honorary Consul of Germany in Tenerife, Ángel Hernández, referred to the Bavarian-Oktoberfest Week in Puerto de la Cruz as “an unique celebration with its own identity and not just a beer festival". This event, which has taken place since 1973, is the result of the relationship between the German people and the tourist destination.
