Celebrate Fiesta del Carmen in Puerto del Carmen

Celebrate the town's patron saint

Puerto del Carmen celebrates Fiesta del Carmen this July and August and it’s a big event for the town. Nuestra Señora Carmen is the patron saint of fishermen and, therefore, of Puerto del Carmen.

The Fiesta del Carmen culminates in a moving procession of an effigy of the saint from the little church. She is then placed in a boat festooned with colourful decorations and sailed out to sea surrounded by a huge flotilla of smaller boats. The priests aboard carry out a blessing for a good fishing season.

There are a number of events planned to appeal to everyone including a great fun fair, sports, concerts and a large party with fireworks.

Guests at Club Las Calas who want to find out more can pop into reception for further information on dates, times and locations. Most of the action takes place at Plaza del Varadero, which is the big square in the old town harbour. However, there are other locations like Playa Grande for the volleyball, Playa Chica for fishing and the local school football ground.
