Lanzarote, Annual Fiestas

Did you know that April is the only month of the year that Lanzarote does not have a fiesta? Below is the annual calendar of fiesta dates for the island of Lanzarote, if you are looking for a list of the bank holiday dates you need the Calendario Laboral. Lanzarote follows the Spanish bank holidays, plus a national bank holiday and then local holidays according to the municipality of the island. These fiestas are where you can see some of the traditional Canarian costumes and music, look out for the romería (procession) and verbena (party) in the programmes which will be posted in our What's on section.

Check out our Lanzarote Information shop for guides and things you might need for your holiday here.
