Things to do in Tenerife in March 2021

Carnival can continue into March in Tenerife whilst Semana Santa (Holy Week) may start at the tailend of the month. A national religious holiday, hooded penitents known as Nazarenos take to the streets. Looking not unlike the Ku Klux Klan, they march to the beat of an eerie-sounding drum. The most evocative Semana Santa parade takes place on the cobbles of ancient university town, La Laguna. This, Tenerife's most quintessentially old-school Spanish town, is known in full as San Cristóbal de La Laguna and sits in the north of the island.

The middle of March sees the Carrera Montaña Guía de Asora / Subida a Tágara, a mountain race held in southerly Guía de Asora. Register for the 10 km walking trail, the 13 km short run, or the 34 km long run in advance or go along on the day to spectate.

The 19th March is a key date in the Spanish calendar as it's El Día de San José (Fathers' Day), recognising the role played by Joseph, husband to Virgin Mary, in the upbringing of Jesus Christ. In the case of El Tanque and La Guancha, their festivities on this day have more to do with San José being their patron saint rather than a shout out for dads.

Event Location Date
Carrera Montaña Guía de Asora / Subida a Tágara Guía de Asora either the second or third Sunday of the month depending on which one is closest to the middle of March
El Día de San José El Tanque 19th March
Semana Santa San Cristóbal de La Laguna dates coincide with Easter
