FOLKLORE AND TRADITIONAL FESTIVITIES
Gran Canaria is one big festival all year round. The excellent climate of the island makes it possible to hold festivals during any part of the year.

During festival time, the plazas, streets and beaches provide the setting where the people of Gran Canaria and visitors alike give free reign to the more joyful and fun-loving sides of their natures.
 
The rich history of the island is also evident in its popular festivals, some of which date back to the times of the native inhabitants, while others have more universal roots. Nevertheless, the festive nature of the Canarian people has given a unique flavour to these festivals, with a calendar of special events that sets the pace for the exciting rhythm of Gran Canaria.
