Tenerife Fiestas in June 2020

Día de las Alfombras (Carpet Day) for Corpus Christi in La Orotava in other times

There are no national public holidays in June, but there are some at a municipal level:

  • 1 June: Monday of Remedios in Los Realejos
  • 13 June: Festivity of San Antonio de Padua in Granadilla de Abona
  • 18 June: Infraoctava del Corpus Christi in La Orotava
  • 24 June: Festivity of San Juan Evangelista in Garachico, Guía de Isora, Los Silos and San Juan de la Rambla
  • 29 June: Festivity of San Pedro Apóstol in El Sauzal and Güímar

Normally these dates would give clues to any fiestas taking place in those localities, but, of course, there are none being held currently. They may still indicate that any shops (that were open) and town halls will be closed in those districts on those days.

The Día de las Alfombras (Day of the Carpets) for Corpus Christi in La Orotava should have been taking place on 18 June this year, however, the town hall of La Orotava announced that they have cancelled their fiestas patronales entirely. In fact, they have cancelled all cultural, recreational and sports events or all those involving any type of agglomeration, including fairs, right through until October.

Likewise, it's difficult to imagine how the annual Fiestas de San Juan could be socially distanced - see the crowds on Playa Jardín beach in Puerto de la Cruz on the Eve of San Juan - so we're sure that these will also be unable to go ahead this year.
