Santa Cruz Council continues meetings with the groups for the 2021 Carnival

Comparsa Los Cariocas at the Carnival Main Parade in 2019

Last Thursday, June 4, a meeting took place between the representatives of the carnival groups in Santa Cruz de Tenerife and those responsible for the Department of Festivities in the City Council, chaired by Andrés Martín. The capital city council is maintaining the round of contacts with carnival groups, in order to deal with various issues, related to the planning of the event, conditioned by the evolution of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Representatives from the comparsa groups; Tropicana, Los Rumberos, Danzarines Canarios, Bahía Bahitiare, Los Cariocas, Los Trabajaras, Los Joroperos and Río Orinoco (who are preparing their return in 2021 after a year's sabbatical this year) were present.

At the meeting, the representatives of the comparsas unanimously stated their intention not to partake in the competitions in 2021, but would be willing to participate in an exhibition or festival on the stage of the International Centre for Trade Fairs and Congresses, due to the difficulties involved in the normal development of rehersals during the current health alert and the uncertainty regarding what may happen in the coming months. Similarly, the comparsas indicated their intention to participate in all promotional events and street performances required by the City Council, using recycled costumes.

The City Council has promised to evaluate the proposal with an absolute predisposition to reach an agreement, once the necessary legal provisions [assuming health considerations too] are assessed. Both parties will meet again within two weeks to also agree the participation rules for the next edition of the Santa Cruz de Tenerife Carnival.

El Ayuntamiento continúa con la ronda de contactos con los grupos para el Carnaval 2021

UPDATEThere will be no Carnival in Santa Cruz de Tenerife in 2021, although the City Council is working with the Carnival groups in the design of some activities that can maintain the spirit of the festivities during the weeks in which it should have been celebrated
