This weekend in Tenerife

This weekend in Tenerife

Updated 2 May: It’s the beginning of summer for many now that we’re in May so how better to celebrate the weekend than with the world-famous Los Realejos fireworks tomorrow Friday, and a Craft Beer Festival in Puertito de Güímar on Saturday? Also this weekend there is the Trail Run Almendros y Volcanes de Santiago del Teide and the now well-established XVII Feria del Libro de Adeje 2019 with its hugely-popular discussion session with local English-language authors. Some might also find time to do their bit for the environment on Saturday too with a Beach clean-up at Playa del Socorro, Güímar. Finally, on Sunday, locals and visitors will be joining the Rogativa de la Virgen de la Encarnación pilgrimage in Adeje, the procession from the top of Adeje to La Caleta to honour an ancient promise. Whatever you’re doing this first real weekend of summer 2019, I hope you have a lovely time!

The famous Los Realejos fireworks 3 May

The famous Los Realejos fireworks 3 May

Although not a Tenerife-wide public holiday, one part of Los Realejos’ Cruces & Fuegos fiesta on Friday, 3 May, draws people from around the island and even further afield. The fiesta itself is part of the Fiestas de la Cruz held throughout Tenerife (see HERE), but in Los Realejos it lasts just over a month from the end of April to the beginning of June, and the fireworks are what people come from far and wide to see. They have been granted National Tourist Interest status and are simply spectacular, long recognized as the best by far in Tenerife, and now officially one of the best in the whole of Spain.

The fireworks are staged as a competition between two streets – Calle El Medio Arriba and Calle El Sol – in Los Realejos for the best display, a tradition that started in 1770. The fireworks manufacturers Hermanos Toste themselves date back to 1788 and have a factory in Los Realejos, the only one in the Canaries. The displays are always broadcast live widely on social media (especially Los Realejos Ayuntamiento) from around 9.30pm, with the whole fireworks display lasting for around three hours. The following short video from 2015 will hopefully give some idea of what to expect.
