Tenerife's Public Holidays for 2022

The Governing Council, this Wednesday, approved the calendar of labour holidays for the Autonomous Community in 2022, within the annual limit of 14 days, and thus open the term in order to establish local holidays. Specifically, the decree establishes, in application of state legislation, as non-working days, every Sunday of the year. Also the festive days of: 

  • January 1Año Nuevo (New Year)
  • January 6Epifanía del Señor (Epiphany of the Lord)
  • February 2 - Virgen de la Candelaria, in Tenerife
  • April 14Jueves Santo (Holy Thursday)
  • April 15Viernes Santo (Good Friday)
  • May 30 - Día de Canarias (Canary Islands Day)
  • August 15Asunción de la Virgen (Assumption of the Virgin)
  • October 12Fiesta Nacional de España (National Day of Spain)
  • November 1Todos los Santos (All Saints)
  • December 6Día de la Constitución Española (Spanish Constitution)
  • December 8Inmaculada Concepción (Immaculate Conception)
  • December 26 - day in lieu, as Navidad (Christmas Day) falls on Sunday

It also set the specific holiday for each island: February 2, the feast of the Virgen de la Candelaria, in Tenerife (included in the list above); August 5, Nuestra Señora de las Nieves, in La Palma; September 8, Nuestra Señora del Pino, in Gran Canaria; September 15, Nuestra Señora de los Volcanes, in Lanzarote and La Graciosa; September 16, Nuestra Señora de la Peña, in Fuerteventura; September 24, Nuestra Señora de los Reyes, in El Hierro, and October 3, Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe, in La Gomera.

There’s a legal right to days off on public holidays in Spain (there's no such right in Britain), but the working week in Spain consists of 6 days, Monday to Saturday, inclusive. 

The regional decree with the calendar of holidays for 2022 does not include May 1, Fiesta del Trabajo (Workers’ Day), as the commemorative day falls on a Sunday. 

Finally, the text of the normative grants Canarian councils a period of one month, from the publication of the decree in the Official Gazette of the Canary Islands (BOC), to formulate their proposals to the General Directorate of Labour for the additional two days of local festivals that by tradition correspond to each municipality. (To be advised).
