White nights or Noche en Blanco, as the Spanish say, are here to stay.
Now, they are celebrated in La Laguna several times a year but also as Plenilunio in the capital. Puerto de la Cruz and Los Realejos also have their "White night" events.
In 2017, Club Azucar of Puerto de la Cruz didn't advertise for the white night, as it's popular for all its events. However, the Play Bar next door promised a Noche en Blanco surprise.
Noche en Blanco 2017 Puerto de la Cruz seventh festival of business, sports and culture in five zones and more than 12 streets and town squares.
Entertainment will be bigger and better. This includes the new Tenerife Moda fashion show Puerto de la Cruz just like the superb La Longuera event by 16 firms and/or designers. El Puerto's will be in the newly revamped Calle Quintana. No classic car show is on the agenda yet. Just check all your favorite digs and ask for specials on that night of December 02... This may be in restaurants, bars, cafes as well as in shops. You will see where Noche en Blanco features.
In the past, Puerto de la Cruz was going to host his Noches en Blanco on all first Saturdays of the month. However, that never materialized. Now, it celebrates one festival, later in the year.
Imagine yourself dressed up like for a fairy party outside the Anglican church... Why? Dressing in white was required.
All fun, such as Noche Blanca, Noche en blanco or Plenilunio is in the mind and you make it a success, you know...
The festivals of white nights happen in other Tenerife towns, too. Originally, they were introduced for promoting more arts and culture, such as museums and art exhibitions. Their theme comes from the city Nancy from France to also help business by having shops open after dark. Even Moscow copied the idea.
La Laguna the university town was the first to follow suite in Tenerife by using a Spanish translation which is Noche en blanco and celebrates it several times a year. Güimar on the East Coast has its own Noche Blanca night .
The planned twelve open shop nights with music and sports at full moon once a month, dedicated to white of the Tenerife capital Santa never happened. However, there were two events in 2016. One was on the 23rd of April and the other on September 12.
Plenilunio in Santa Cruz of September 21, 2013 was scheduled to be a special night.
In fact, the capital was literally going the extra mile. Guided tours
at important museums and art centers which also included La Recova
exhibitions with lanterns took place to complement the full moon. Imagine to see the Guanche mummies at their museum under such spooky conditions... Also,
it offered cheap drinks and Tapas which were prepared by its renown chef Armando Saldaña. The 5,2 km full moon City Marathon accepted
all age groups. €6.bought admission. 902 364 603 could be called for
ticket sales of €3 for guided tours at the Teatro Güimerá.

Indeed, Puerto de la Cruz followed in the foot steps of the
innovative night activities of the capital and La Laguna to attract even
more people to come to celebrate the naturally lit night skies. Other
Tenerife towns may also add their own ideas.
However, nothing has been said about guided "white" night tours for
Puerto Cruz, lately. But El Puerto may have surprises.
About Noche en Blanco Tenerife dates that cannot be relied upon although some kind of pattern is there.
