Adeje Ayuntamiento has announced the town’s Fiestas Patronales, which start on Saturday and run until Sunday 21st. As usual, the fiestas will include lots of music and eating, folk groups, and the traditional parade of the statue of Our Lady of the Incarnation from Santa Úrsula church at the top of Calle Grande, and the hoisting of the local flag. For the fiesta’s fortnight the town will enjoy a variety of acts, musical, theatrical, traditional and modern, young and old. As usual, the fiesta’s second Monday, 15 October this year, is a local fiesta, with schools and many local offices closed (see HERE for other public holidays).
The main parade of the fiestas will be on the evening of Saturday, 13 October, when a 6pm Mass will be followed around 8pm by the parade and evening street parties with live music and dancing in the Plaza de España. The fiestas culminate then in the traditional ‘romería’ on from 10am on Sunday 21 October, with oxen-drawn carts in Calle Grande, and many people in traditional dress, singing, dancing, and handing out food and drink to passers by. The full programme in English is HERE.
