Santa Cruz Tenerife Carnival Program 2021

The parade approaches. Coso (Carnival Main Parade) Tuesday 5 March 2019

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.

This provisional program, though based on the schedule from previous years, is subject to change, but suggests that carnival events in Santa Cruz de Tenerife in 2021 might look like this. We'll update as soon as the carnival organisers publish an official calendar.
