30 May Canarian Day

Posted on: 24/05/2016

Next Monday, 30 May, is Día de Canarias, Canarian Day, a Canaries-wide public holiday in celebration of the anniversary of the first official Parliamentary session of the islands on 30 May 1983, some 10 months after the Canaries became an autonomous region of Spain in August 1982. Apart from the formal and official events that are always held, with many shops and offices closed, the day is celebrated throughout the islands with a wide range of cultural events and festivities, not just on Monday, but over the weekend from this coming Friday. Most, moreover, will have a Baile de Magos at some point.
