The theme of Carnival in Santa Cruz in 2006 was "Tribes": The scenery was transferred back to the The Tenerife International Centre for Trade Fairs and Congresses, due to the beginning of the works of the Plaza de España. There were two stages; one main and one secondary, linked by a walkway. The decoration was based on graffiti and web icons as, at first the theme was to be "urban tribes", but was given a general tone of "Tribes" later. 

Carnival in the streets in 2006 took place between Fri 24 Feb and Sun 5 Mar.
