Tenerife in October 2022

Plaza de los Remedios in Buenavista del Norte dressed for the October Fiestas

Plenilunio de Santa Cruz is back in the capital between 7 - 9 October 2022 with around 100 activities in 13 different locations around the city. This includes music and markets; a Gastro Beer Fest and the Santa Cruz Asian Festival.

October 12 is the Fiesta Nacional de España (National Day of Spain), which is a national public holiday. The annual celebration includes a parade of the Spanish Armed forces, held in Madrid and presided over by the reigning monarchs. Similarly, military celebrations usually take place in Tenerife.

The annual Craft Show returns to La Laguna in October. The IX Crafts Show will be held from October 21 to 23 in the Plaza de La Concepción with 40 stalls expected, showcasing the work of local artisans.

Locally, there are the following holidays in these municipal areas:
  • 3 October: Fiesta del Santísimo Cristo de la Salud in Arona
  • 10 October: Fiesta of Santa Úrsula in Adeje
  • 17 October: Fiesta del Santísimo Cristo del Calvario in El Tanque
  • 21 October: Fiesta of Santa Úrsula in Santa Úrsula
  • 25 October: Nuestra Señora de Los Remedios in Buenavista
It may mean that fiesta events are taking place in those locations. Further information should be sought from town halls and via their social media.

In Buenavista del Norte, they are holding their Fiestas of Nuestra Señora de Los Remedios 2022 with a huge program of both religious and popular events and activities from 21 October to 1 November. A few that caught my eye include the Verbena (dancing) to Orquesta Guaracha (and DJ Dani De
Leon in the interval) on Saturday, 22 October from 23:30 in the Plaza de Los Remedios. On Sunday, 23 October at 8pm is the Drag Queen Gala. And on Friday, 28 October at 5:30pm there is a Ruta teatralizada (theatricalised route) “Buenavista: curiosidades en su historia” (Buenavista, curiosities in its history), which could be fascinating. Full program.

There are four events on the Tenerife Rally 2022 Season Calendar in October:

And the Feria de la Almendra (Almond Fair), known as La Gran Majada, in AripeGuía de Isora is said to take place around the end of October.
