Arona's Festival of San Antonio Abad opens the 2020 calendar of romerías in Tenerife

Arona's San Antonio Abad 2020

Arona always bills it's Romería de San Antonio Abad as the the first of the year and in 2020 this is no different. Having seen the Calendar of Romerías in Tenerife 2020, we discover that there's been one already, but we'll let it go. Hey, This Is Tenerife!

These fiestas include a solemn mass and procession on Friday, January 17, followed by a chocolatada, fireworks and dancing to Orquesta Deliciosa. There's workshops, games, traditional sports and the children's festival on Saturday 18 January.

Blessing of animals and free transportation

On Sunday, January 19, at 10:00 a.m., the opening of the crafts fair will take place in the Plaza del Santísimo Cristo de la Salud, while at 11.00 the mass sung by the Parranda Chasnera will be celebrated in the parish church of San Antonio Abad.

After the mass, the Romería of San Antonio Abad pilgrimage will be celebrated, during which the traditional blessing of the animals will take place. Then there's dancing to Orquestas Wamampy and Los Teymar from 3:30 to 10:30 pm.

There's also free transportation to the romería, with departures at 10.00, 11.00 and 12.00 hours from Los Cristianos (Avenida Juan Carlos I, in front of the Infanta Leonor Auditorium) and Playa de las Américas (Calle Noelia Afonso, in front of the Hotel Zentral Center). Return will be 16:00, 17:00 and 18:00 to the same collection points.
