Tenerife in January 2021

What awaits us all in January 2021?

Two public holidays begin the year on Friday 1 January and Wednesday 6 January for 'Los Reyes' (Kings Day), or Epiphany. That's about it for anything usual. The Three Kings Parades that normally draw huge crowds on Twelfth Night have been replaced this year with the trio instead visiting many more districts, so that they can be seen from homes and balconies instead. 

Three craft fairs for the Christmas and Three Kings holidays, will be held in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, La Laguna and Puerto de la Cruz. The Christmas and Three Kings Craft Markets are usually held between 2nd and 5th January

The following municipal holidays are listed for January, which were finally agreed on the 29th and published on 31 December. These, of course, with the current restrictions, merely indicate days when local shops and council offices close. 
  • 18 January: Nuestra Señora de la Esperanza in La Guancha
  • 20 January: Festivity of San Sebastián in Adeje
  • 22 January: Festivity of San Vicente in Los Realejos
Fiestas of San Sebastián in La Caleta, Adeje and the Fiestas of San Antonio Abad in Arona, Buenavista del Norte, Chio, Gúímar, La Matanza de Acentejo, Los Silos, Tigaiga and La Florida (La Orotava), we shall have to live without. 

The Rutas de Almendros en Flor (Almond Blossom Walks) are planned to take place between 23 January and 14 February, part of the cultural program of the Santiago del Teide Council. Mayor of Santiago del Teide, Emilio Navarro presented the program that will include a large number of routes, events, contests and a gastronomic route ...

Apart from these walks, a gastro route has also been organized throughout the municipality in which 25 restaurants and shops will participate, the "Almendro en Flor" photography contest and a contest called "Líricas del Almendro" aimed at the schoolchildren of the municipality. In addition, during all Sundays and holidays of the campaign there will be guides distributed along the route to respond to questions and various tracks of QR trails will be uploaded to social networks for those who want to make the walk independently.
