Update 5.15pm: And of course the biggest of them all – from 11pm Fin de Año celebrations at San Sebastián in La Caleta, Adeje, with Orquestas Wamampy y Hermanos Chávez. To avoid any confusion, this is just outside the village of La Caleta itself, in the square with the large church and new commercial centre just in front of the Sheraton hotel.
Update 5pm: Granadilla has issued a list of roads in El Médano which will be closed, and another of roads in the town in which parking will be banned, as of 3pm tomorrow for the town’s New Year’s Eve fiesta. As I posted below, there will be free buses from within the municipality, but for those travelling from outside, please do be aware that the town is likely to be very restricted for drivers, and parking is almost certain to be a nightmare. HERE is the council’s list.
Update 30 December: Santiago del Teide has announced its New Year’s party in Plaza Buganvilla in Los Gigantes from 10pm.
Update 29 December: Arafo’s circus-themed Fin de Año fiesta will be set in a big-top marquee in the town’s Plaza San Juan Degollado. From 11pm, entry free. Sounds fun!
Update 27 December: Granadilla is laying on free buses within the municipality for transport to and from one of south Tenerife’s biggest New Year’s parties – El Médano, of course. Times and routes are detailed in the poster above – click to expand.
Update 26 December: There will be New Year’s Eve celebrations throughout Tenerife, one of the foremost being in the Plaza de San Sebastián in La Caleta, Adeje. Most other towns, though, will themselves have music and dance from around 10.30 pm to welcome in 2014, with the lucky grapes and champagne often provided at midnight as the chimes of church bells ring out. And, of course, there’ll be the fireworks at midnight! I’ll post posters whenever I see them, but for the moment, above is Arona’s for Los Cristianos’ New Year’s Eve party – the poster should be large enough, but click on it for a fuller sized version.
Update 17 December: Arona has now also announced its calendar of pasacalles – musical parades through the streets – for Christmas. As the poster above shows, these will start tomorrow, 18 December, in Playa de las Américas, and end on Monday 23 December in Los Cristianos.
Update 13 December: And now San Miguel de Abona. Please click on the small images above to see the programme in Spanish or in English.
Update 11 December: Arona’s Christmas programme is HERE, as well as on the poster above – just click the image to see it full size.
Update 6 December: Arafo’s Christmas programme is HERE.
Update 3 December: Now, Puerto de la Cruz Ayuntamiento has released its Christmas programme, HERE.
Update 27 November: Santa Cruz Ayuntamiento has now released its Christmas programme, which can be viewed HERE.
This Christmas is already underway with Adeje’s announcement of its Christmas and New Year 2013-14 programme of events. These start this Friday, 29 November. with the Christmas market, on Friday 29 November through to Sunday 1 December, in the car park outside the music school in Las Torres. This is on the fountain roundabout just down the road from Mercadona. On the 29th, too, the traditional Belén (nativity) will be opened at 6pm in the Adeje music school itself. For the rest of the programme, see the Ayuntamiento’s website HERE, or click HERE to download in English. I’ll post other local programmes as they become available.
