Arrecife Events 4 November to 16 December 2016

The Cabildo of Lanzarote and Ayuntamiento of Arrecife have confirmed a programme of activities taking place in Arrecife to revitalise La Avenida along the seafront of the capital.


What was once a bustling area remains empty after reopening, following months of roadworks to install the Zonas Commercials Abiertas (ZCA).

A month and a half of activities including music, theatre, sport and children’s activities have been scheduled for Friday afternoons as part of the Plan de Revitalización del Comercio Local “La Marina”. There remains some controversy over the ZCA on La Avenida, with mixed opinions over whether this area should be pedestrianised, restricted to residents, business owners and public transport, or open to general traffic. 


The following events have been organised to take place in the Parque José Ramirez Cerdá, which is the open space where the kiosk Tourist Information centre is situated, in front of the Castillo de San Gabriel and landmark of the bridge Puente de Las Bolas. 

Friday 4th November Frozen Musical

Friday 11th November Cocinero for un día (chef for a day)

Friday 18th November La Avenida Activa 

Friday 2nd December Jardinero por un día (gardener for a day)

Friday 9th December Arrecife Street On

Friday 16th December Alegría Musical

If driving the easiest place to park is below the Gran Hotel this is the tallest building in Lanzarote, and if travelling by bus, the Intercambiador station by Playa del Reducto beach.

Other places to visit which are within easy walking distance of this area include the picturesque waterfront area of Charco de San GInés which has a fabulous vibe on Friday nights and Marina Lanzarote.
