The theme of Santa Cruz de Tenerife Carnival in 2021 was Carnivals of the World. However, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Santa Cruz de Tenerife Carnival was not celebrated in its usual manner in the streets and only some events and documentaries related to the carnival were broadcast virtually

The Casa del Carnaval (House of Carnival) museum hosted an exhibition entitled "Traditional Carnivals in the Canary Islands" with representations of carnival groups from Lanzarote, El Hierro, Fuerteventura, Los Indianos de La Palma, among others. 

Science Fiction has already been chosen as the theme of Santa Cruz Carnival 2022. What form that will take, and whether it will take place in it's usual format on it's customary dates, we shall have to wait and see and entirely depends on the evolution of the pandemic.
