Tenerife Fiestas in February 2020

Carnival Queen in Santa Cruz de Tenerife 2019

February 2020 brings us all the excitement of the biggest party of the year: the carnival in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, but before that, February 2nd will no doubt still have events taking place in honour of the spiritual patron of the Canary Islands: the Virgen de la Candelaria, although this year that date is NOT a public holiday as it already falls on a Sunday. 

Each year on February 15th (this year a Saturday), from 5 a.m. onwards, the doors of the Santa Catalina convent in La Laguna will be opened for the faithful and the curious to queue around the block for the chance to view the incorrupt body of Sor María de Jesús (Sister Mary of Jesus de León y Delgado) (1643 – 1731), known as La Siervita.

In Santa Cruz the carnival inauguration gala took place on January 24 and the contests have been ongoing since January 30. The Program for Carnival in Santa Cruz de Tenerife 2020 lists the remaining contests and galas in the lead up to Carnival 2020 in the streets, which takes place between Friday, 21st February 2020 and Sunday, 1st March 2020. Monday of Carnival (February 24) will also be a local holiday in the city of Santa Cruz and Martes de Carnaval (Carnival Tuesday / Shrove Tuesday) is a municipal holiday in Adeje, Arafo, Arico, Arona, Candelaria, El Rosario, El Sauzal, Fasnia, Granadilla, Icod, La Guanza, La Matanza, La Orotava, La Victoria, Puerto de la Cruz, la Laguna, San Miguel, Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Santa Úrsula and Tacoronte.

In Puerto de la Cruz too there are carnival events taking place between Friday, 7 February and Sunday, 1 March.
