Romería de San Roque in Garachico

Today, the Romería San Roque, normally celebrated each year on 16 August, should have been taking place in the pretty town of Garachico, but has been cancelled, as have so many fiestas of this type this year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. One of the biggest Romerías on the island and, this year, with the date falling on a weekend, it would have drawn particularly large crowds.

The Baile de Magos (Country Dance) has suffered the same fate and what celebrations there are, have to be from home. [Program PDF]

The big day of San Roque begins at 8.00 am with ‘Viva San Roquito’ with the ACAM fanfare of Garachico. At 12.00 will be the mass in the parish of Santa Ana presided over by the bishop of the diocese Bernardo Alvárez Afonso, broadcast on Mírame TV and Canal 10 TV.

The Romería (pilgrimage) of San Roque will be celebrated this year from the rooftops and balconies of Garachico. It will be from 2:00 p.m. The festivities commission invites "all the neighbors to enjoy from their houses a day as fun as if we were in a cart, with our traditional clothing and the typical gastronomy of our pilgrimage." Later, at 5:40 pm, Televisión Canaria will broadcast the program ‘Viva Canarias’ live from Garachico.

To end the day on Sunday August 16, the Guaracha orchestra will liven up the afternoon, from 6 pm, with the dance, broadcast through the festivities' Facebook page.
