Tenerife Municipal Holidays 2021

On 31 December 2020 the Official Bulletin of the Canary Islands (BOC Nº 270) published ORDER 5287 of December 29, 2020, which finally determined the local festivals of each municipality of the Canary Islands for the year 2021 (Official version PDF). There are two days in each of the 31 municipalities, which added to the 12 decided at a national, regional and island-wide level, add up to the 14 days annual public holidays decreed by law.

Of course, with COVID restrictions, for the moment, these are just a list of dates when the town hall and shops will be closed in each area. In other times and hopefully those in the not too far distance, it also provides clues to the fiestas celebrated in each district. In particular, many districts have still opted for Carnival Tuesday (Shrove Tuesday), 16 February, as a holiday, but we already know that carnival events have been cancelled this year
