August is usually packed with fiestas and romerías, with the biggest being the fiestas in Candelaria and Peregrinación a Candelaria (pilgrimage) on the 14 and 15 of August, with the Ceremony of the discovery of the Virgin - which last year were suspended and, which again have been suspended and are not going to take place this year either.

Other major celebrations in a normal August would be the Romería de San Roque in Garachico on 16 August and the Corazones de Tejina around 24 August.
