Updated 13 October: Adeje’s Fiestas Patronales Traditional culminate this weekend with the XXXII Adeje Folklore Festival organised by the Adeje Municipal Folklore School on Saturday October 15th at 9pm. The council says that this year the running theme is the link between popular music and traditional, which will also feature the relationship between the music of the Canarias and America. At the end of the folklore performances the Sabrosa orchestra will end the night with a street party in the Plaza.
The traditional Romería will bring the Fiestas to a close on Sunday, with activities beginning at 10am with the Farm Fair in the small plaza alongside the Consorcio, Health Centre and main post office. At 11 Mass will be sung by the Adeje Municipal Folklore Group followed by the offering of farm products to the church patrons. The Romería itself will begin at 1pm, leaving from the Health Centre and moving up Calle Grande to Santa Úrsula Churh. Some 13 carts will be taking part. There will be a huge crowd there for this, so get there early!
