Since 2016, the Department of Culture and Festivals of Teguise has started organizing an event in honor of the Traditional Carnival. At that time the ceremony took place in Plaza de la Constitucion.
In its two editions, this initiative has been a success with the public and the interest is rising with each edition. The event is intended to pay tribute to the traditional carnival of the Canary Islands, with some of its most representative manifestations of our land. La Villa de Teguise, the homeland of one of the most important expressions of this festival, acts as the host of the exhibition.
In its 2018 edition, on the occasion of the 600th anniversary of Teguise, the experience of the event is supposed to be enriched with the presence of groups like Antruejo de Llamas de La Ribera (León), Los Caretos de Podence (Portugal) or the Vejigantes de Puerto Rico.
This year's meeting will be complemented by school workshops, gastronomy exhibitions and masks and traditional costumes specific to the carnival.
