The historic town of Granadilla de Abona to celebrate its 2021 Festivities

Granadilla de Abona is to celebrate its festivities in honor of San Antonio de Padua and Nuestra Señora del Rosario after two years. The events will take place from June 4 to 13. Mayor, José Domingo Regalado, and the councillor for Culture and Festivities, Eudita Mendoza, presented a program where the orchestras of the municipality: Panamay and Scorpio, will star in a video to be broadcast at 8:00 p.m. on the 4th - presumably via their social media.

On Saturday, the 5th, the XXXIII Feria de Artesanía (33rd Handicraft Fair) opens, in addition to an exhibition of photographs of previous romerías in various squares of the historic centre of the town.

The craft fair is scheduled to take place this year, on June 5 and 6, in the Plaza San Antonio de Padua. Hours are 10:00 to 20:00 on Saturday 5th and from 09:00 to 14:00 on Sunday 6th.

Although there will be no romería, on June 6, at 8:00 p.m., a folkloric offering will take place to San Antonio de Padua by the soloists and dancers of the municipality, the Viñátigo and Parranda Chasnera Folkloric Groups. On the 11th, at 9:00 p.m., a virtual gala for the election of the Queen of the Festivals will take place. And on Sunday, the 13th, a floral offering will travel through the main streets of the town. 

There is a full program to download (PDF) from this page at the council's website.
