Experience the Vibrant Canarian Carnival in Prague This Saturday!

The Carnival of Santa Cruz de Tenerife is one of the most significant events of its kind in Europe and ranks among the most famous in the world, second only to the Brazilian Carnival.

This Saturday, Prague will get a taste of this vibrant celebration filled with colors, music, and dance.

The parade, featuring one of the winners from this year’s Tenerife carnival and her award-winning costume, will begin at 3 p.m. at Ovocný trh and will proceed to the Old Town Square.

The Tenerife participant’s costume, an enormous wearable art piece, measures 5 x 6 x 4.5 meters and features striking yellow, gold, and red hues.

Along with the dancer will be her suite of drummers and she will be accompanied by Drag Shiky, the drag queen of this year’s also popular carnival in Gran Canaria.

The Santa Cruz de Tenerife Carnival, held from January 12 to February 18 this year, is the second most important carnival in the world. Each year, half a million spectators watch the main parade, which features hundreds of dancers and bands.

The carnival is so vital to the island that it even has its own museum, La Casa del Carnaval, in Santa Cruz de Tenerife. Visitors can enjoy the vibrant displays of costumes and sequins year-round.

These elaborate costumes are crafted by skilled designers over months and often cost tens of thousands of euros.

This year’s carnival theme was the World of Television, and the annual election of the carnival queen was a highlight. The grand gala took place on February 7, with Corina Mrazek González crowned queen.

This unique presentation of Canary Islands culture is free to the public and part of the celebration marking the 30th anniversary of Canaria Travel travel agency.

“We combined our anniversary celebrations into a two-day program. The first day includes a working meeting with our Spanish partners, ending with a social evening. The second day is open to the public in the center of Prague. Thanks to long-standing personal relationships that have evolved from work to friendship, we can offer Prague an exclusive taste of the famous Canarian carnivals as an invitation to holiday in the Canary Islands,” said Lenka Viková, owner of Canaria Travel.
