This three day event takes place at the Pinolere Ethnographic Museum and Park (Calle Alzados Guanches, s/n, 38310 Pinolere, Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Spain), organized by the Pinolere Cultural Association in collaboration with the Canary Islands Government, Tenerife Island Council and the City Council of La Orotava.

This edition of the fair, which is entitled “!!OOH¡¡ LOS CUCHILLOS CANARIOS”  is dedicated to traditional Canarian knives - called naife from the English word knife - will have the participation of more than 200 artisans and craftsmen of the islands.

Free buses are available to take you to the fair. The buses depart on the hour from Avenida Sor Soledad, 20, in La Orotava, and return on the half hour from the Park.

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.
