Restaurante Casona live Jazz in Puerto Cruz used to be just one example. It has been closed until further notice since 2019, unfortunately, which leaves us with free Jazz during the Heinecken Jazz Festival in Tenerife as well as during the Mueca art festival and at the Realejos Slow Food restaurant in Summer.  Then, there is Spanish news for Tenerife Jazz.

Entertainment Tenerife history

It all started with the Fiesta de la Cruz of Los Realejos as a church event. This happened in the first decade of the 16th century. Then, the archbishop Diego de los Moros of San Cristobal de la Laguna made it mandatory for Realejos to worship la Cruz the Crucifix. It had to be on every second of May by street processions. Much entertainment including fireworks in honor of the cross followed fast.

Taoro Congress Center for dancing

The Puerto Cruz casino slogan in the olden days was 'Let's dance the night away'.

It happened precisely at the Taoro Congress Center which was right beside the Casino of Parque Taoro.

The last classical Christmas concert at this former Taoro Congress place was announced by loudspeakers of a town hall car in 2008.

Free movie at El Portillo

Tenerife Cinema movie fun about the birth and evolution of the island is offered by  free entertaining film shows of the Portillo visitors center.

Fun events published by Town Halls

Many villages have their own little concerts and presentations, such as nativity plays which are much loved by children. There used to be a lovely puppet show in Los Realejos every Christmas which was directed by an Argentinian lady called Pope from La Orotava whom I knew.

Work shops  for painting, drawing, photography as well as cooking at the TEA exhibition center provide entertainment on the biggest of all Canary Islands.

Where people create outdoor amusements in forests

There are many public places for traditional picnic with folk entertainment in the Tenerife mountains or by gorges. Once, I joined at a barbecue of a hiking club at Parque Ramon Caminero. That's near the Caldera picnic park.

Parque Ramon Caminero La OrotavaParque Ramon Caminero La Orotava

More than once, I went to la Caldera Agua Mansa,  30 minutes from La Villa where a friend had her birthday parties three years in a row. Both parks have toilets and are about ten minutes by car apart.

Another popular barbecue spot for outdoor entertainment is the Parque Barranco Ruiz which translates into Ravine of Ruiz Park .

Basically, each and everybody can arrange for entertainment such as a big birthday party in any of those aereas de recreaciónes de Tenerife or Tenderete, as the locals say.

All sorts of Tenerife organized outings provide professional animator entertainment which starts inside the tour coaches that take you to the picnic parks. 

Entertainment Tenerife by Tenderete

Tenderete musicians also provide much fun with their street concerts. Tenderete is Canary Island folk music with the band Los Sabandeños being the best.
