Artisan fairs are a regular event throughout Tenerife, and they are always well attended, with people browsing and buying the products of some really creative and talented individuals, all of whom are officially recognized with an artisan card, a carné de artesano (link). Many of these fairs are held in the autumn, and this year, for example, two very popular ones are Vilaflor’s on 26 August and Guía de Isora’s on 8 September. One of the biggest, and now quite a famous one, is in Pinolere, an ethnographic museum village above La Orotava, and every year more than 200 artisans and crafters take part: this year’s fair is 30 August to 1 September: for more about Pinolere, see HERE.

The main Canaries-wide arts and crafts fair held shortly before Christmas alternates between the two province capitals and this year will be back in Tenerife’s Recinto Ferial between 4 and 8 December (see HERE), and of course there is the main Christmas market for Reyes in the Plaza del Príncipe in Santa Cruz between between 2 and 5 January 2020.

The diary for all these fairs, including other autumnal ones is HERE, and on the main Tenerife Artesanía website HERE.
