Get Lost in Gran Canaria November Events Calendar

Get Lost in Gran Canaria
November 2019 Events

While the sun is still shining, we´ve had our first glimpse of autumn with the breezes and a bit of a storm the last week of October just before the Noche de Finaos celebrations.

But not to fear! It rarely dips below 22° here and there are plenty of events to keep your spirit warm this November. So pack a light a sweater along with your bikini and sit back and enjoy the change of seasons as the island starts to dress herself up in fairy lights and artisan Christmas markets leading up to dulce Navidad: Christmas in Gran Canaria.

Sweet November
in Gran Canaria

November is one of Gran Canaria’s quietest months,but December will definitely change that with countless events from converts, nativity scenes, Christmas markets and more. Click here for a full list of events going on in Gran Canaria in December.

As most of the world the Canarios are busy planning and preparing for the holidays to come. With less “not to miss events” than most of the year, November is a perfect opportunity for hiking, day trips and visiting places many never get to see.

To find out what Christmas is like in Spain and the Canary Islands, click here.

And for day trip inspiration this November, check out the links below:

Puerto Rico, Amadores & Southwest Gran Canaria

Agaete’s Blue Lagoon: Charco Azul 

Barranco de las Vacas: Gran Canaria’s Antelope Canyon

Discover Moya: A Canarian Mountain Village Lost in Time

If you´d like to recommend any events for this or the the coming months, let me know in the comments below, or contact me directly.

And as always, don´t forget to get lost out there!

Love & light,

    Wow, there are so many great events on in Gran Canaria. I have never been to a music festival so maybe the Canaris maybe the place I need to go to my first one. Maybe the Musicando in Parque Doramas: that is Flamenco/Canary folklore/Brazilian fusion sounds interesting and I love that it is free
