July 3 is the Anniversary of the Derrame del Vino (Wine Mutiny).

Day of Traditions in Chirche, should take place on Sunday 9 July 2023

July Fiestas in La Laguna

The city of La Laguna, celebrates their Romería Regional de San Benito Abad (second Sunday in July annually, confirmed as Sunday 9 July 2023), considered the most representative romeria of the Canary Islands, with colourful, local costume, music, dancing, wine and food. Amongst the celebrations is a Livestock or Cattle Fair, with exhibitions of livestock and also demonstrations of threshing and other traditional country pursuits. It is held in honour of San Benito Abad (St. Benedict of Nursia), the patron saint of farmers of Tenerife. These July fiestas also include the delightful, Noche de los Burros (Night of the Donkeys)

Fiestas del Carmen

In July the Fiestas del Carmen are the high spot on the calendar and are celebrated most largely in Puerto de la Cruz in the north of Tenerife, where the image of the Virgin del Carmen (Our Lady of Mount Carmel) is carried through the streets to the harbour, then boarded onto a boat, for a "sea parade" and a ceremony to bless local fishermen - transforming the old port area into a chaotic, noisy sea of fiesta fun. In Puerto de la Cruz these celebrations always take place on the nearest Tuesday before the 16th, this year, Tuesday, 11 July 2023.
