Carnivals of the World 2021

Carnivals of the World

The theme of carnival in Santa Cruz de Tenerife 2021 has been announced this morning. A total of 19,904 votes were cast online and the results were as follows:

6. Far West with 9% of the vote
5. Africa 13%
4. The Amazon 16%
3. Otaku - Japan of the 21st Century with 19%
2. Ancient Greece 21%
... and, in a very close first place, the winner is Carnavales del Mundo (Carnivals of the World) with 22% of the vote. 

So in 2021 we can [hopefully] look forward to a tour of the parties of Notting Hill, Nice, Venice, Rio de Janeiro, Cádiz, Santa Cruz de La Palma and Cologne.

After the Inauguration Gala on Friday 15 January 2021 and all of the various contests that follow, Santa Cruz de Tenerife Carnival 2021 [we hope] will take to the streets between Friday, 12 February 2021 and Sunday, 21 February 2021.

UPDATE 23/07/2020: Carnival in Santa Cruz de Tenerife has been postponed to the second quarter of 2021 because of the Covid-19 pandemic. The city council will choose the final date in September 2020 and in consensus with the carnival groups. Three options are currently being considered: April, May or July 2021. New dates will be listed here.
