Tenerife in May 2020

Previous May Fiestas and Floral Crosses in Santa Cruz de Tenerife

May in Tenerife starts and ends with public holidays. Friday 1 May 2020 is Fiesta del Trabajo (Workers’ Day) and Saturday 30 May 2020 is Día de Canarias (Canaries Day), which is the anniversary of the first session of the Canary Islands' Parliament after the return of democracy in Spain, this year without celebrations.

Join in with the "Virtual Country Dance" taking place from people's homes on Saturday 2 May to celebrate the Fiestas de Mayo in Santa Cruz de Tenerife.

May 3 Día de la Cruz (
Festival of the Crosses), in Santa Cruz, which also marks the founding of the city on that date in 1494, however, Santa Cruz de Tenerife council has announced that they have cancelled the events of Fiestas de la Cruz, with celebrations from balconies and homes being the only option this year.

Likewise, the Fiestas of the Crosses and Fireworks - the battle between the streets of El Sol and El Medio - that usually takes place on 3 May in Los Realejos, has been cancelled, due to the public health crisis, for the first time since 1976.

Puerto de la Cruz has also cancelled its Fiestas de la Cruz, usually celebrated on 3 May. This year it is 369 years, since 3 May 1651, when the city was able to appoint its own mayor, having been part of La Orotava until that time.

Arona too has taken the decision to cancel all festivities for the month of May.

Sunday 3 May is also Día de la Madre (Mother's Day).

May 5th is the anniversary of the eruption that destroyed Garachico's port.
