Update 17 January 2016: Adeje Ayuntamiento has said that instead of closing yesterday as planned, the indoor ice-skating rink in the Magma centre will remain open until Sunday 24 January, a full extra fortnight.
Update 12 December 2015: Guía de Isora HERE.
Update 11 December: Arona has announced its annual charitable collection of all sorts of things, from school books, non-perishable foods, games, etc for the municipality’s disadvantaged residents and their children. Collections points are at all the cultural centres in Arona – days and times when donations can be made are on the following poster.
Update 10 December: Just a reminder of two forthcoming events from Adeje’s and Arona’s Christmas programmes: the main Adeje Christmas market takes place in Calle Grande this Saturday, 12 December, between 5pm and 1am the following morning; and on Thursday, 17 December, there will be a Christmas concert, courtesy of the Municipal Music and Dance School, in the Auditorio Infanta Leonor at 7pm. Entry is free.
Update 1 December: Santa Cruz is the capital of Tenerife and as such has probably the fullest Christmas programme of all: it’s HERE. La Orotava has also released its own – a beautiful programme for a beautiful town, HERE.
Update 4pm: As in previous years, Arona has organized children’s Christmas activities in various parts of the municipality; these take place in the afternoons between 5 and 7pm, and include things like Christmas crafts workshops and bouncy castles: the schedule of locations is HERE. There is also the Christmas Nutcracker ballet in the auditorium in Los Cristianos as I posted HERE, and the full December schedule of events for Arona is HERE.
Original post 30 November: This Christmas is now properly underway with Adeje, once again, being first off the mark with its Christmas programme of events, including concerts, carols, markets, nativity scenes (belenes), and religious services. Adeje Navidad 2015-16 is HERE (in English HERE), and starts this Thursday with the blessing in the Centro de Mayores of the first belén of many throughout the municipality. It is followed on Friday, 4 December, with the usual Christmas market between 5 and 9pm 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 takes place in Calle Grande on Saturday, 12 December, between 5pm and 1am Sunday morning. And worth specific mention, there’ll be ice-skating in south Tenerife for the first time – in the Magma centre between 18 December and 10 January. I’ll post other local programmes as they become available.
