page 28 Canary Folk Fest is  back

The Canary Folk Festival has returned to Arona with the best folklore, gastronomy and traditions by the sea.

The plaza de La Pescadora in Los Cristianos recently hosted the inauguration of this four-month event which, from December 21st to January 5th, will include the town’s first permanent Christmas market. The Canarias Folk Fest is celebrating nine years in Arona, offering residents and visitors the best folklore, gastronomy and traditions.

The event will bring four months of weekly performances to the bay of Los Cristianos, an opportunity to enjoy the folk groups I’Gara, Verodal, Friends of Punta Rasca, the Municipal School of Folklore of Arona and Herederos de Chasna. They will rotate each week with two performances starting at 8.30. Next to them, on the promenade, the 30 stands of the Folk Fest traditional and contemporary food and handicraft exhibition will open on Thursdays from now until March 22nd, with a sales and tasting time of 4pm to 10pm.

The first permanent Christmas market (from December 21st to January 5th, except holidays) will be enlivened by carols and other actions of dynamisation in celebration of the festive season.
