Get Lost in Gran Canaria February Events Calendar

Get Lost in Gran Canaria
February 2019 Events

February may be the ¨coldest¨ month of the year in the Canary Islands, but with Carnival fever spreading like wildfire there will be plenty to keep you warm!

The month starts off quietly enough with the always lovely almond blossom festivals in Tejeda and Valsequillo, along with the usual Ruta de Pinchos for tapas Thursday and Ruta Playa Viva free concerts at Las Canteras beach. And then finally, the second half of the month will bring what we´ve all been waiting for…

Las Palmas de Gran Canaria
Carnaval 2019!

Las Palmas de Gran Canaria 2019 Carnival will be held from February 15 – March 10, 2019, jam-packed with all the costumes, competitions and comparsas that are sure to leave you with memories to last a lifetime.

Here you can find everything you need to know and what to expect at Carnival 2019 in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. If you´re planning on doing some island hopping to check out what our neighbor has in store, read on about Carnival 2019 in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, which just happens to be the biggest Carnival in Spain.

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

Carnaval del Día. Vegueta, Las Palmas
Carnaval del Día. Vegueta, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (Canary Islands)

Carnaval del Día in Vegueta: Picture this: you´re in the heart of the historic center of Gran Canaria´s capital city. Only instead of the usual views of cobbled lanes and traditional wooden balconies, every nook and cranny is packed with costumed merrymakers celebrating from after lunch until the sun comes down.

This is by far, without a doubt my favourite Carnival celebration in Las Palmas. Don´t miss it!
