Fiesta of Carmen

Fiesta of Carmen

On the 16th July Teguise’s main fiesta takes place, along with plenty of other activities such as the “Acatife” folk festival, featuring performances by Canarian folk music groups; Canarian wrestling contests; processions; popular dances; theatrical performances; a Canarian fiesta in which an offering is made to the Virgin, etc. However, the most exciting of all of them has to be the procession of the sailors on the island of La Graciosa, in which the locals of this island make offerings to the Virgin from their boats.
