Bavarian Week in Puerto de la Cruz this year is without its star event: the Beer Festival

Instead the Center for Initiatives and Tourism (CIT) has designed a program adapted to Covid-19 that includes concerts with limited capacity and a German Gastronomic Week

After 47 uninterrupted editions, the Bavarian Week this year is without its star event: the Beer Festival or Oktoberfest, which usually brings together thousands of people each year in the Plaza de Europa in Puerto de la Cruz. Faced with the Covid-19 pandemic and the impossibility of organizing events with large crowds, the celebration has been adapted to current security measures and will take place from August 24 to 29.

The Center for Initiatives and Tourism (CIT), promoter of the Bavarian Week since its inception, has decided to celebrate it this year with a program that includes concerts with limited capacity, an outdoor parade and a German Gastronomic Week with which to promote the local economy. This was confirmed at a press conference by CIT Vice Presidents Manuel Siverio and Ulrike Schmidt; the mayor of the city, Marco González; the Councilor for Tourism, Carolina Rodríguez, who offered the details of the 2020 program.

The German orchestra Blechbuckel will offer live music in various popular enclaves in Puerto de la Cruz. There will be five dates: on August 24 at the El Tope hotel at 9:00 p.m.; on August 25 at Tigaiga Suites at 7:00 pm; on August 26 at the San Telmo hotel at 9:00 p.m. on August 27 at Parque Vacacional Edén at 9:00 PM; and finally, Lago Martiánez will host the last concert at its facilities on August 29 at 12.00. All concerts will have limited capacity to comply with relevant security measures. Reservations to be made by email info@citpuerto.com.

On Friday, August 28, starting at 6:00 p.m., a parade will take place through the city.

In this edition, the German Gastronomic Week is included, in which a total of nine restaurants and bars will offer a typical German dish or menu. The participating establishments are: Casa Magnolia, City Café, Columbus Plaza, Delocos, Edelweiss, Tasca Gastrobar La Cocina, Rancho Grande, Templo del Vino, and The Gramophone Bar.
