St Patrick’s Day annual Gala Dinner

St Patrick’s Day annual Gala Dinner

Failte and Slainte! There are a few tickets left for the St Patrick’s Gala Dinner in Golf Costa Adeje on Saturday 14 March. The venue has become something of a green and gold standard for this excellent event, given the top class catering and superb wines that are part of the dinner. And your host for the evening is the Honorary Irish Consul, Álvaro de la Bárcena Argany, who is now also a deputy minister in the regional government.

Tickets are €45 and some of that money, as well as funds raised by raffle during the dinner, will go the the Asociacion San Juan, an Adeje-based day centre for children and adults with special needs. For ticket reservation, call Noelle on 633 399 827 or Denise in the Irish Consular Office, mornings, 922 245 671. Hope to see you there!

There is no question that this is an evening of great fun, great food and great craic! And of course you don’t have to be Irish to be part of the Gala event – it’s an open Failte and Slainte for all who would like to join us.

Updated 19 February 2020: Santa Cruz’ Carnaval has been taking place since the end of January, with murga and dance groups competing indoors, but from now the carnival enters its most famous phase, with the crowning of the carnival queen tonight in the Recinto Ferial before events move out into the streets with the opening parade on Friday, the main Coso parade the following Tuesday, and then the burial of the sardine on Wednesday, and the big party to close the carnival on Sunday 1 March.

In between there are any number of events and Day Carnivals, and the full website for the Santa Cruz carnival can be viewed HERE, with the daily calendar HERE. Other big carnivals in Tenerife are Puerto de la Cruz (7 Feb-1 Mar), Los Cristianos (12-23 Mar), and Los Gigantes (6-14 March).

Original post 1 October 2019: Once again we’re looking ahead to Carnaval, with the poster unveiled tonight for Santa Cruz 2020. It’s this one, designed by Javier Nóbrega, for a carnival based on the theme of the Flirty Fifties (Los Coquetos Años 50). The poster was commissioned this year, rather than put out to public competition, and it even has an animated version HERE! The full website for the carnival, which takes place between 1 February and 10 March, is HERE, containing the full programme HERE and the daily calendar HERE.

Other big carnivals in Tenerife during the season have the following provisional dates:
Puerto de la Cruz – 20-29 February
Los Cristianos – 12-23 March
Los Gigantes – 6-9 March.
