Canary Day festivities<<< Back to blogs
Canary Islanders are very proud of both their traditions and their status as an autonomous part of Spain so visitors at the end of May will find a host of activities laid on to celebrate Día de Canarias. It’s one of the most popular festivities in the Islands and is held on May 30th to mark the anniversary of the first session of the Canary Island’s own Parliament in 1983.
It’s an opportunity for islanders to don their colourful traditional dress and show off their cherished traditions through folk singing and dancing, as well as traditional food and drink. Banks, businesses and schools all close as everyone enjoys a wide range of activities, from sporting events to special church services, and public and private parties to exhibitions of arts and crafts. It’s a day to celebrate being Canarian – and everyone is invited! Ask at reception for information about what is happening near the resort.
