Tenerife Fiestas in September 2020

Sunset in Tenerife

This year, unusually (as if anything were usual), there's a Tenerife-specific public holiday on 7 September 2020 for the Bajada de la Virgen del Socorro. This holiday normally conincides with Candlemass on February 2, but the date was swapped as that fell on a Sunday. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, the Romería will not now take place.

The largest celebrations in September, any other year, would be the Fiestas del Cristo in La Laguna, the main day being the 14th, but which normally inclues a month long array of events, both religious and popular, with parades, fireworks and more. Again, we imagine there will be an adjusted program this year. Details will follow when we have them.

The annual Pinolere Craft Fair, normally held at the end of August / beginning of September, is to be fused with the Feria del Queso (Cheese Fair) and held [hopefully] in November.

Events on the Rally Calendar are scheduled to restart. [Fingers crossed.]

The following are holidays in individual municipalities:

  • 8 September: Festivity of Nuestra Señora del Socorro in Güímar
  • 8 September: Festivity of Nuestra Señora de Abona in Arico
  • 8 September: Festivity of Nuestra Señora de la Luz in Los Silos

  • 14 September: Festivity of the Santísimo Cristo de La Laguna
  • 14 September: Festivity of San José in San Juan de la Rambla
  • 21 September: Festivity of Santísimo Cristo de la Dulce Muerte in Guía de Isora
