Los Cristianos Carnival 2021 - Dates to be announced

los cristianos carnival  arona
The carnival in Los Cristianos is the most popular in the south of Tenerife

Los Cristianos is the host of one of the largest carnivals in Tenerife South and in 2018 over 35.000 people have participated in the main parade (El Coso Apoteosico del Carnaval de Los Cristianos).

Although the most popular carnival on the island is the one in Santa Cruz, many other towns and resorts celebrate their own carnivals, since Tenerife is a year-round tourist destination and any reason to have a party is happily accepted by everyone. 

Los Cristianos Carnival 2021: The dates have not been announced yet

  • 2021 Carnival Theme in Los Cristianos: to be announced

Los Cristianos Carnival is the most unpredictable carnival in Tenerife in terms of dates. If for other carnivals it is possible to calculate the dates based on past editions, this is not possible in case of the carnival in Los Cristianos, which seems to always set up random dates. So it is not possible for us to try to predict the dates for the next year's edition. We will update the page as soon as the 2021 dates are confirmed by the Ayuntamiento de Arona (the local council for the municipality where Los Cristianos is located).

The carnival in Los Cristianos is probably the most popular event of its type in the South of Tenerife and it's fun to participate in. It doesn't matter if you get dressed up or not, the carnival has a unique energy that spreads among all of its participants, so be sure to join in if you are in Tenerife at this time of the year.

The essence of the poster is based on merging tradition with the avant-garde. The costumes will be inspired by the Far East and its traditions, while tourists and visitors are invited to let their imagination fly and come dressed in costumes as well.
