Carnaval on Tenerife – Los Cristianos

Looks like a bit of belly dancing practice is in order for the Carnaval in Los Cristianos this year…and from what I’ve seen on the beaches in Los Cristianos, wobbly bellies won’t be much of a problem.

The Carnaval runs from 7th to the 16th March and the Arona council website says that it will post the programme of events at the beginning of 2009…wait a minute, it’s now the 12th February. Still what’s the rush, this is Tenerife after all and it’s not as though Arona gets a lot of tourists who would like to know such things!!!

Main Dates

Your guess is as good as mine at the moment.


Arona have now posted the agenda for the Carnaval in Los Cristianos. The main dates are:

Opening Parade - Saturday 7th March, 19.00
Election of Carnaval Queen - Friday 13th (definitely unlucky for some) March, 21.00
Coso Apoteósico - Sunday 15th March, 17.00
Burial of the sardine - Monday 16th March, 20.00
