Join in the Fiesta San Ginés this August

It's time for Arrecife's largest fiesta

Arrecife’s Fiesta San Ginés is the Lanzarote capital’s biggest fiesta of the year celebrating the city’s patron saint. Taking place every August over two weeks, it is one big party with plenty going on for locals and visitors to enjoy almost every day.

One of the most poplar attractions is the fun fair which is located close to The Cabildo building, while the Grand Finale is a huge beach party with live music and fireworks.

There is so much going on every day, we’ve selected the activities and events we think our owners and guests will enjoy.
