51st St Mark the Evangelist’s Procession
Every year, St Mark the Evangelist’s Festival draws thousands of people to Tegueste. The festival’s highlight is the Romería de Tegueste, one of the most popular processions in the Canary Islands. Held for more than 50 years, it has contributed to keep Tegueste’s customs and traditions alive.
The Romería is a lively, picturesque event. Everyone takes part in it, with wagons and wagon riders playing a prominent role. This year, there will be 18 wagons, five carts and the town’s four traditional vessels: the Pedro Álvarez, the San Luis, the Tegueste and El Socorro. In addition, the procession will be accompanied by the traditional Flower Dance.
