April 2021 begins with two Public Holidays on, Thursday 1 April (Jueves Santo/Maundy Thursday) and Friday 2 April (Viernes Santo/Good Friday). 

However, there are no events as the Bishopric has suspended acts of worship and processions outside the churches, because of the ongoing pandemic.

Tegueste Council, "in its commitment to supporting the handicraft sector", has organized a Local Craft Fair, which will take place on the weekend of April 10 and 11 at the Mercado del Agricultor de Tegueste Farmer's Market, from 9:00 a.m. at 2:00 p.m..

Mayor of Tegueste, Ana Rosa Mena, explained that the Fair, which had been postponed at Christmas due to the COVID-19 pandemic, will comply with the access restrictions and security measures dictated by the health authorities to avoid contagion. "Guaranteeing the safety of the participating artisans, as well as visitors is our priority," said Mena. Likewise, the Councillor for Crafts, Eladia López, announced that in total there will be 20 artisans who will participate in this fair and that they are specialized in ceramics, embroidery, jewellery and textile manufacturing, among other disciplines. “It is a great opportunity to show support for local artisans, especially this sector that has been so hit by the crisis generated by COVID-19, and that is part of the culture, traditions and lifestyle of the municipality”, said the councillor.

"The Tegueste Handicraft Fair joins other actions promoted by the council to highlight the work of professionals in the artisanal sector, such as the handicraft guide, prepared and distributed by the  council itself", explained a note to the press sent from the Council.

Municipal Holidays: Monday 19 April is the Festivity of Santo Hermano Pedro in Vilaflor de Chasna and Monday 26 April, the day after the Festivity of San Marcos, is a holiday in the municipalities of Icod de los Vinos and Tegueste

On the Rally Calendar for 2021, the Orvecame Norte Rally is on 24 April.
