Puerto de la Cruz International Carnival 2020
A new Carnival is coming to Puerto de la Cruz, to turn the town upside down between 7 February and 1 March. The Puerto de la Cruz International Carnival is one of the most popular festivals in Tenerife. The theme chosen for this year is musicals, especially those that have stayed in the minds of film and music lovers for ages.
Traditional events include the Burial of the Sardine on Ash Wednesday (26 February) and the Carnival Queen Pageant, on 29 February, featuring krewes, floats and bunches of merrymakers.
From 9 to 15 February, there will be two contests: the 18th Krewes from the North Competition and the 11th Children’s Krewes from the North Competition. Other activities: Children’s Float Gala (16 February); Opening Parade (22 February); and Costume Contest and Day Celebrations (23 February), among others.
