Get Lost in Gran Canaria October Events Calendar

Get Lost in Gran Canaria
October 2019 Events

Autumn is in the air, there’s a chill in the breeze and the leaves are changing shades from green to gold…

Just kidding!

This is Gran Canaria and the weather forecast expects bikini season and high temperatures at least through November 😉. And since Canary Islands summer hasn´t really ended yet, neither have the festivals!

October brings us live music at Festival Cero along the Las Palmas coast, Oktoberfest in the heart of historic Vegueta, a cozy autumn apple festival in the mountains of Valleseco of course, the unique traditionalal Finaos celebrations all around the island. Despite the lack of pumpkin spice and fluffy sweaters this fall, there’s plenty to keep you busy in Gran Canaria if you get lost out there.

I´ll be adding new events all month as they come to my attention, so don´t forget to bookmark this page for updates.

La Noche de Finaos

La Noche de Finaos 🌰

Roasted chestnuts, traditional folk music and plenty of honey rum.

While most of the English speaking world has Halloween in their Jack-o-Lantern head, the Canary Islands are preparing for Finaos.

La Noche de Finaos is a time to remember, honour and celebrate loved ones who have passed on before us, set to the tune of traditional malagueños, snacks and treats made with almonds, walnuts and honey and plenty of the Canarian joie de vivre. Read all about the history and traditions of the unique Finaos celebrations in the Canary Islands.

An Ode to October

The sun is shining, the weather is sweet, and October is shaping up to be another great month in Gran Canaria. With so much live music, cultural events and toasty temperatures, there’s plenty to make up for the lack of cozy, cable knit sweaters and steamy, pumpkin spice lattes! Now get up, get out and get lost out there!

Love & light,

Erica ✌️😘

      Happy birthday month!! It’s a perfect time of year here – still very warm but very few tourists and plenty of fun events going on. The real Oktoberfest is of course in music, but a lot of cities in Europe do their own mini version and it’s always a blast 😉

    I love visiting places that offer free museum entrances. I used to not have much interest in museums, but really enjoy them the older I get. I also love beer so Oktoberfest in Vegueta sounds like it could be a really fun weekend.
