World Tourism Day is actually on Tuesday, 27 September, but many parts of Tenerife will be celebrating it today as well as tomorrow, and some indeed on this coming Saturday and beyond.
There will be wide range of activities on offer in the municipality of Santiago del Teide, with carnival groups performing dance and music in hotels and complexes throughout the borough from 6.30pm today, ending in Playa la Arena and in Los Gigantes plaza where there will be live music from 8.30pm. Tomorrow, Tuesday, there will be a market and cultural demonstrations and exhibitions from 10am in Los Gigantes plaza followed by music in the evening.
On Tuesday in Puerto de la Cruz, there will be traditional products on show for tasting on the Paseo San Telmo throughout the day, a demonstration of Lucha Canaria from 6.30pm in the Plaza del Charco, and museums and hotels will be throwing their doors open throughout the day to any who want to look around.
Guía de Isora will be holding a day of events centred on the promenade in Alcalá this coming Saturday, 1 October. The council has produced the following video showing what will be available – the programme can also be viewed HERE.
Arona will be hosting a cocktail competition from 4pm on Tuesday in the Los Cristianos auditorium – there is a Facebook event page HERE – and Adeje has arranged a series of events in the CC Salytien in the Costa Adeje from this Tuesday up to an Oktoberfest on the weekend 7-9 October: Adeje’s programme is HERE.
Wherever you are there is likely to be something going on at some point over the next couple of weeks, and particularly today and tomorrow, to celebrate the day, and there is much more information about World Tourism Day itself on the UN World Tourism Organization’s website HERE.
