Santa Cruz de Tenerife Council sees it as very difficult to organize a massive Carnival in 2021

Carnival Opening Parade in 2019

The Councilor for Fiestas of the Santa Cruz de Tenerife Council, Alfonso Cabello, said on Thursday that it would be very difficult for a massive carnival to be organized in the city next year due to the restrictions imposed by the coronavirus pandemic. However, he has indicated that a decision will be made at the end of the month or the beginning of October because they also want to evaluate how the school year starts in the archipelago.

Cabello has said that a survey is being carried out among carnival groups and companies related to the leisure industry –and discussed with municipal groups– about the two proposals that are on the table: April or July. The mayor has admitted that a carnival will probably not be held with large crowds of more than 200,000 people and says that the groups prefer the summer and companies April, so as not to affect summer business.
