Update 2pm: Granadilla has announced not one but two parties to welcome in the new year at El Médano, one in the central plaza and the other in the plaza de San Antonio de Padua. The council confirmed that all five municipal bands will be offering entertainment and that, as usual, there will be a free bus service for the different parts of the municipality. The council says that there will also be fireworks from the town’s little harbour area. Festivities start at 11pm.
Update 29 December: Adeje’s New Year’s Eve celebrations will as usual be held in San Sebastián, La Caleta – the large church square in front of the Sheraton hotel. The celebrations will have live music from three bands and start at 11pm.
Update 19 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, from 11pm outside the Cultural Centre.
Update 5 December: San Miguel’s Christmas programme is now available – above is the English and German version.
Update 2 December: Guía de Isora has now unveiled its Christmas programme HERE.
Original post 28 November: This Christmas is already underway with Adeje’s announcement – first again! – of its Christmas and New Year 2014-15 programme of events. These start next weekend with the Christmas market postponed because of the winds from today, in the Las Torres car park by the fountain roundabout just down the road from Mercadona. Apart from this and several other mercadillos, the main Christmas market in Calle Grande takes place on Saturday, 13 December, between 5pm and midnight. For the rest of the programme, see the Ayuntamiento’s website HERE, or click HERE for a pdf in English. I’ll post other local programmes as they become available.
