Buenavista del Norte Carnival 2021 - Tenerife, Canary Islands
Like most other towns in Tenerife, Buenavista del Norte celebrates its own carnival.
Although much smaller than the carnivals in Santa Cruz or Puerto de la Cruz, the event in Buenavista gathers many locals from the municipality for a weekend of family fun. There are activities and events organized for the little ones as well, especially on Sunday, when there is also a parade for the kids.

Due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, there are no large events currently scheduled to happen in Tenerife.
Even the big carnival in Santa Cruz de Tenerife is canceled in 2021, with everyone hoping that things will return to normal by 2022 so that the next edition of the carnival will be celebrated as usual in Buenavista del Norte once again.
