Things to do in Gran Canaria in January 2020
Gran Canaria natives start the new year as they end the old one: partying. The first big festivity is La Cabalgata de los Reyes Magos. The Magic Kings are how the Spanish refer to the 'Three Wise Men', and the 6th January (Epiphany) is when Spain's boys and girls historically unwrapped their Christmas presents (and even now they get more on this day than on Christmas Day).
The day itself is a quiet one which locals like to enjoy in the company of their family, however the evening parade the night before is anything but. The most colourful 5th January fiesta takes place on the streets of capital Las Palmas de Gran Canaria in a procession which takes the regal trio from Las Canteras Beach to downtown Triana.
The middle of the month sees the capital's Auditorio Alfredo Kraus commence its role as host of the Gran Canaria concerts of the Festival Internacional de Música de Canarias, a highbrow series of classical music performances from heavyweight ensembles and orchestras local, national, and international.
Altogether bawdier fun is to be had at the Carnaval de Las Palmas de Gran Canaria at the end of January which, like the international music festival, continues into February. Expect cross dressing from contestants at the drag queen competition and also those attired as widows surreally accompanying their sardine husband to his ocean cremation during El Entierro de la Sardina procession.
