20 Jul 8 EVENTS YOU SHOULDN’T MISS THIS SUMMER IN TENERIFE
Lots of people wonder what to do in Tenerife in summer (apart from going to the beach) and the truth is, it can be quite difficult to decide because of all the fun activities there are.
As a sports club, we love any plan that requires putting our trainers and sport gear on, but, as a social club, we also know how to chill and enjoy a great party.
That’s why we’ve come up with a list with that combines the best sporting and leisure events that will take place during July and August in Tenerife.
2ª CARRERA X LA COSTA X LA VIDA
When? 22nd of July
Where? Los Silos
We’re off to the north of the island to run for a good cause, the fight against leukemia. The second edition of this race will begin at 10:00 by the coast in Los Silos. If there’s something we like more than exercise it’s doing it for a good cause, and on this occasion, it’s a solidarity act in benefit of the Josep Carreras Foundation and the Alejandro Da Silva Foundation.
Adults (7,5 and 15 km) and children (300 – 500 m) can participate in this race. The inscription includes a runners bag with T-shirt and several presents.
CANARIAS SURF FILM FESTIVAL ARONA
When? 27 28 and 29 of July
Where? Centro Cultural in Los Cristianos
A weekend full of workshops, gastronomy, cinema and, of course, surf. Whether you’re an expert surfer or you simply enjoy different events, you’ll have a great time! After being in Santa Cruz, this festival comes to Arona from Friday, but the biggest day will be on Saturday, when lots of activities regarding the sea and sustainability will take place.
You’ll be able to enjoy a Surf Yoga workshop given by Jasmine Hidalgo at 10:00, followed by several environmental workshops. If you get hungry during the day, you can visit the Sea Market & Food Trucks that’ll be installed in the outside part of the cultural centre. On Sunday at 21:30 it’s film time!
ACTIVATE SUMMER PARTY
When? 27th of July
Where? Activate Sports Club, Costa Adeje
This summer, we’re celebrating our first ever Activate Summer Party. We’re thrilled to be able to offer you a party that’s unique and where both adults and children will enjoy a great evening. The theme is Arabian nights, so be ready to embrace your exotic side while you have fun in a party like no other in the south of Tenerife.
The party will take place in our sand area, with shows, music sessions, a buffet dinner and many surprises. Apart from a great drink selection, you’ll be able to savor a varied dinner, which includes vegetarian and vegan options.
TRAVESÍA A NADO BAJAMAR – PUNTA DEL HIDALGO
When? 28th of July
Organized by the Autonomous Sports Organism, this traditional swimming event has been celebrated the last 15 years and is very popular. The goal is to swim one kilometre and 900 metres from Bajamar to Punta del Hidalgo in less than an hour and a half. This race is part of the 14 competitions that make up the I Edición de la Copa Canaria de Aguas Abiertas, which takes place in the 7 islands.
The swimming race will have 12 categories, both female and male, in which the kids and senior categories stand out. It’s worth stating that, due to the large amount of participants, this year there are 4 more categories than last year. You can sign up online or in person before the 24th of July.
ARONA SUMMER FESTIVAL
When? 28th of July
Where? Amarilla Golf, San Miguel de Abona
If you love electro music, you can’t miss the Arona Summer Festival. With artists such as Dubvvs, Galantis and Nicky Romero, this festival has become one of the best electro events in the country.
In this eighth edition, the festival will have the biggest stage of its entire history, plus a food area where you’ll be able to find all types of products.
When? 4th of August
Where? Magma Arte & Congresos
One of the most popular summer parties in the south of the islands is changing location! You probably won’t know what party we’re referring to if we say Minimal Summer, but we’re sure you remember that once a year, the coastal town of El Porís de Abona (in Arico) celebrates a massive party. Due to its large success, the organizers have decided to move the party to Magma in Costa Adeje, but without losing the beach vibe it’s know for. That’s why you’ll be able to have fun in the “Beach area”, a space designed with swimming pools, climbing walls and lots of surprises.
The party will be outdoors, and during 13 hours you can choose between the Latin area and the electro one, two completely different atmospheres.
When? 10th of August
Where? Skate Park in El Médano
As variety is the spice of life, we’re not going to be running and swimming all day… In this sporting event, rarer activities are the main subject, sports such as skate, parkour, calisthenics, BMX freestyle or urban dance. Organized by the Cabildo of Tenerife in collaboration with different town halls, this program includes all these street activities with the intention of giving young people a space to practice their favourite sport.
Tenerife Urbano arrives to the south of the island on the 10th of August, to El Medano to be more precise, where, after an evening full of events, a rap concert will take place, in which different musical groups of the island will participate. Without a doubt, an event that will enlighten many young people in search of new activities.
When? 11th of August
Where? Costa Adeje
One of the most awaited festivals of the Canary Islands will take place on the 11th of August, bringing some of the most famous DJs worldwide to Costa Adeje. In this seventh edition, more than 30 artists will be present during a popular open-air festival, including Tego Calderón, Kase O, Friction and Panorama, among others.
5 stages make up the space dedicated to this event, in which the Espacio Cultural Aguere will also be present with a stage that will offer mainly live acts. Around 200.000 people are expected, who will enjoy 9 hours of music.
