Junior Carnival Queens from 2016-2020

Junior Carnival Queens from 2016-2020

The Election of the Junior Carnival Queen should have taken place today, Sunday 31 January 2021, but, of course, because of the COVID pandemic, carnival will not be taking place. It has, however, been announced that Guardians of the Sceptre until Carnival 2022 will be chosen from among 12 adult, three junior and five senior queens. This year virtual carnival events take place between 17 February and 7 March, culminating in a television gala, ‘Santa Cruz, Corazón del Carnaval’ (Santa Cruz, Heart of Carnival). 

Three of the below, highlighted, will participate in the gala.

  • 2020 - Violeta García García with a costume entitled, ‘La más anciana de la vieja fábrica’ (The oldest in the old factory), designed by Alexis Santana Rodríguez and representing Construcciones y Reformas Eliazar Jesús and Restaurante La Punta.
  • 2019 - Ylenia Rodríguez Domínguez in a costume entitled “Entre el pasado y el presente” (Between the past and the present), designed by Santi Castro, representing children's boutique La Princesa y el Peis.
  • 2018 - Ayelén Pierchurowicz Lutzardo in a costume, entitled Y en este jardín, yo soy la reina (And in this garden, I am the queen) and designed by Borja Abreu, representing Comparsa Los Joroperos.
  • 2017 - Amaia Hernández Perdomo with a costume, entitled Contigo aprendí (With you I learned) and designed by Eduardo Martín Quintero, represents Club Rikc & Rock Alcampo La Laguna.
  • 2016 - Tania Martín Quintero, in a costume entitled, Entre el bien y el mal, la medianoche está al llegar (Between good and evil, midnight is coming), designed by Eduardo Martín and representing Cash & Carry Julián Hernándéz and Instalaciones de Cerrajería Antonio Martín.

Instead, we bring you coverage of this event from last year. This is one in a series of posts that aim to keep the spirit of carnival alive. Or keep the flame burning, so the torch can be passed to the next carnival, whenever we can get back to gathering normally.
