Puerto de la Cruz International Carnival 2023
Like Santa Cruz de Tenerife, the coastal town of Puerto de la Cruz celebrates Carnival in style, sticking to deeply-rooted traditions. Celebrations begin with the Opening Carnival Gala on 9 February, inviting people out into the streets. The gala marks the beginning of a wide range of events for children and grown-ups alike.
Carnival highlights in Puerto de la Cruz include the International Carnival Queen Pageant (16 February), the Big School Parade and Children’s Party (17 February), the Funeral and Burial of the Sardine (22 February) and the Big Carnival Parade (25 February). Things come to a close with the Family Carnival at the Quay Court on 26 February.
