New Year’s Eve in Tenerife!

New Year’s Eve in Tenerife!

There will be celebrations throughout Tenerife tonight, with music and dancing in most plazas to welcome in 2018 with the lucky grapes and champagne, and of course fireworks!

In Los Cristianos, the New Year’s Eve party will be in the Plaza del Pescador outside the Cultural Centre as usual, while Adeje’s Fin de Año celebrations will be in the main town again this year, in the Plaza España between the Ayuntamiento and the Church at the top of Calle Grande. This is the venue chosen a few years ago to replace La Caleta in order to bring people into the town to help local commerce, satisfying wide demand from locals for many years. In both Adeje and Arona, the traditional grapes will be on offer to welcome in the new year to live music until the very early hours!

Another major party is in El Médano with Granadilla Ayuntamiento again providing free transport for those coming down to the coast from other parts of the municipality.

In the north, La Laguna will welcome the New Year in the Plaza de la Concepción, and Santa Cruz will see it in at the Plaza de la Candelaria. Puerto de la Cruz’s celebrations will again be in the Plaza del Charco.

Canarian regional TV alternates its live broadcasts between the Canary Islands’ provinces, and so will be filming this New Year’s celebrations live from Gran Canaria this year. Spanish TV will broadcast as usual from the central square Puerta del Sol in Madrid where the chimes of the famous clock bells set the mark for eating each of the dozen traditional grapes. The mainland is an hour ahead of us, of course, so celebrates New Year at 11pm our time … so here we can welcome 2018 in twice! Wherever and however you’re celebrating, I hope 2018 will be happy, healthy, peaceful, and safe for us all. Happy New Year!

    oh thank you snowy! To you, and to everyone who reads In Tenerife, a very Happy New Year, and I hope 2018 is very kind to us all. Thank you for enjoying the website … I hope and expect to be continuing it for some time to come!! 🙂

  7. Janet, this is to convey thanks for all the time, effort, and detail involved in your pages. Very best wishes for a positive, healthy new year to all especially those who throw ( mostly) light on areas of concern.
    May i add that the concert on Saturday evening at Guia was pure delight, music for a range of ages/ preferences, and the most engaged enthusiastic performers from tots of 4 to the conductor who was obviously inspirational. What a superb venue too, many cities in U K would envy.
