As Clio and I were discussing in one of our recent podcasts, the whole summer season of fiestas is a write-off this year because of the covid19 health emergency, but councils will be seeking to fill some of the gaps with safe events to entertain their local residents. Adeje is one of the foremost in planning this, as Clio mentioned, and now the council has unveiled it Summer 2020 programme, making good on its promise to support local culture. The events are taking place in July, August and September in different parts of the borough, and although entry is free, booking on www.tomaticket.et is required in order to control capacity.
Adeje Councillor Clavijo Maza said the object of the initiative was to help “generate the creative process again, slowly, gradually, with our residents alongside”. She added that the council always work to bring events to the people, to the urban centres, and this year it is also to offer a summer alternative to the neighbourhoods, given that so many local fiestas and events have been cancelled due to the pandemic. “The council have reinvented the summer programme with this alternative that will reach all parts of the borough”.
On safety, Clavijo Maza said that they were asking people to use their sense of responsibility. “All activities will need to be carried out under the health and safety conditions in place, and the public would need to use face masks and observe social distancing”.
Events will be taking place in Tijoco Bajo, Las Nieves, Los Olivos, Armeñime, La Caleta, Los Menores, La Hoya, La Quinta, Fañabé, La Concepción and Callao Salvaje. The full programme of events and dates is online, https://townhall.adeje.es/?especial/2083/summer-in-adeje-2020.
