Tenerife Fiestas 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, but this year it's unlikely there'll be any celebrations.

May 3 Día de la Cruz (Festival of the Crosses), usually celebrated throughout the month 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. This is the first time ever that these celebrations have been cancelled since they first appeared in their current format in 1976.

Puerto de la Cruz has also cancelled its Fiestas de la Cruz and for it's founding, 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), celebrated on the first Sunday in May, since 1965. Previously, it was 8th December, day of the Immaculate Conception, so maybe that could be brought back this year for families unable to celebrate now.

May 5th is the anniversary of the eruption that destroyed Garachico's port in 1706.

The only municipal holiday is for San Isidro Labrador on 15 May in Santiago del Teide.

Also in Puerto de la Cruz, the celebration of the 'Canarian May', which was due to take place coinciding with Canary Islands Day on May 30, is also canceled.
