Some say that Tenerife events which don't charge entrance are the best. Others feel that everything which has a price is worth so much more. Another correct answer may be that all depends, you know...
In a hurry and want to get the latest events for Christmas and New Year 2019 for Tenerife North now now? Look here
Also note that the Puerto Cruz Arcon Tapas Place by Casa Ventosa in Calle Iriarte is back in business again.
Many a Tenerife concert doesn't take place in halls with superb acoustics but on simple town squares for free.
Depicted are only a few musicians and singers of this fabulous Spanish Gospel band, probably the best in Europe in my mind. It offers musical shows for Tenerife events, such as weddings and more. The next free performance, an amazing success by the way, was to be in Icod de Los Vinos by the stairs of the Ayuntamiento on January 04, 2020 at 18.00 in the evening. I could not see them well to take a shot in Santa Cruz on December 19th. A big crowd like a mini Rave prevented it in the confined Space downtown Santa Cruz. Expect them to become a permanent Christmas feature in Tenerife towns.
Indeed, the Casa Grande of Abaco is back on track with its winter concert season.
Don't forget to reserve, as they are booked out fast. Find more information
Sorry, too many personal problems prevented me to type it out for you in English this year.
Such street music doesn't only happen in tourist hubs but may also be much of free Christmas entertainment in Tenerife villages and hamlets off the beaten track during day and night until January 6. So called Villancicos could also be small Jazz brass bands or just children that sing Christmas Carols.
The New Years Eve (Noche Vieja) for 2019 and 2020 outside celebrations with fireworks will be again on Plaza de Candelaria, contrary to previous years on the
back square of the Auditorio de Tenerife. This is to the best of my knowledge. I shall keep you posted if there's a change, after all.
Then, there are always New Years Eve street parties at La Noria the Tenerife party street now Calle Antonio Dominguez Alfonso in walking distance from the Auditorio and Plaza de Candelaria.
Included are la Noria celebrations of the mad season, as carnival is the most important Tenerife event after Christmas and New Year.
The Puerto de la Cruz Poster was captured thanks to the kind permission of the Exmo.Town Hall of Puerto de la Cruz. The one from the capital is from the friendly organization of Santa Cruz Fiestas.

Lets just keep it for the record, although it's last year's snow.
Celestino Mesa's latest art represents a fusion of Realism and Impressionism with themes of interest in our era.
Depicted beside is the topic Blessed Inspiration translated from the Spanish Bendita inspiración.
A must see art show with medium sized works, some of which done with charcoal, others with oil and acrylics.
Photographic effects may have played an original role in some of Mesa's large works that surpass Euro 7000 by estimated value.
Indeed, the Patapa Realejos takes place every year. Again Mi Guachinche Casa Pedro of Toscal Longuera was a winner and this year a big winner with 5 medals where its wine of the Bodega Bosol made first prize. So now we have two very popular restaurants in the Longuera about 50 m from each other. The other one is the Italian Restaurant Pomodoro y Basilico. The latter is a bit more expensive and doesn't do Tapas, as such.
The night before the San Andres festival is dedicated to celebrate new wines all over the island.
However, there are also events of denominations, such as the Gran Fiesta de Los Vinos 2019 for the wines of Tenerife. The last took place on September 07 on Playa de Socorro of Los Realejos

Admire the Casa Ventosa nativity scenes on Plaza Consejil by C/Iriarte of Puerto Cruz. Sorry, find a changed location due to road works in 2019 by clicking here. These Belenes aren't only the
biggest but, also the most elaborate of the

However, the most impressive with life size figurines and things are traditionally exhibited in front of Town Hall of la Orotava, where a Belen in the center of the court was introduced in 2016. Now, there is also one under cover in one of the houses by the square with many more all over town.
Additionally, one of most charming Spanish Christmas customs is the lighting of candles at many Tenerife churches.
Before I forget, Titsa is giving free rides in its buses on December 24, 2019 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
The temporary Titsa staff represent an extraordinary, temporary event due to the phase one new transfers and many other changes. Titsa is to be thanked very much for providing this special service, as many people are confused by what is happening.
In fact, the center of craftworks in Tenerife by the very efficient platform called la Ranilla Espacio artesano has almost become synonymous with the old quarters of Puerto de la Cruz by the same name.
