Tenerife Summer Carnival 2021, to be held from Sept 6 to 12 in Puerto de la Cruz

Summer Carnival Poster 2021
The work of Lara Marrero from Puerto de la Cruz, it is an adaptation of the poster from the last winter edition, also by the same author, and dedicated to Mythology and Fantasy. As an anecdote, it is the first poster in the history of the carnaval that includes elements referring to the exchange with Düsseldorf, as represented by the communication tower that is seen in the central rear of the poster, or in the couple of fairies who wear the traditional costume used by the kings of the aforementioned European carnival. 

In June the Department of Festivities announced the dates of the next Tenerife Summer Carnival 2021, to be held from September 6 to 12 in Puerto de la Cruz. Necessarily, the preparations are being carried out with caution, knowing the sanitary regulations that are in force by the declaration of level 4 to avoid possible COVID contagions.

Therefore, as last year, there will be no mass events.

However, after the hiatus of last year, Puerto de la Cruz recovers the celebration of what will be its second Carnival King Gala, elected for the first time in 2019 and Televisión Canaria, has just committed to broadcast the gala, to be held at the Lago Martiánez on September 10. Organisers announced that there are sixteen contestants for the King of Summer Carnival this year, double the number from the first edition.

The famous singer will be one of the artists who will participate in the Gala for the Election of the King of the Summer Carnival 2021, which will be held on September 10 from the Martiánez Tourist Complex and that will be broadcast on TV Canaria and streamed on the official carnival social networks
