Welcome to Morro Jable Fiestas & Festivals
In Fuerteventura, Spain and the rest of the Canary Islands are famous for there festivals (fiestas) and carnivals!! In Fuerteventura throughout the year the island has many carnivals and fiestas, below I have listed a few of the more popular ones and generally larger one's that happen!
There are a few fiestas, festivals and carnivals that are held in or close to the resort of Morro Jable! If you are on holiday in Morro Jable whilst a fiesta is taking place, I would highly recommend that you should definitely go along to have a look and for the more adventurous participate, which can do by taking part in the fancy dress and partying alongside it all - it is a brilliant day and night out, but be warned most do party well into the early hours and some don't even stop for two days - so be prepared!
On January 6th is the Dia de los Reyes - Three Holy Kings Day, The Three Holy Kings are celebrated all over the island, and the rest of Spain and the Canary Island. In Fuerteventura the eve of Epiphany is marked by a street parade, during which the Three Wise Men distribute Christmas gifts to the children of the towns.
In February and March is Carnival time! This is the Canary Islands most popular festival that time of year, with the longest tradition and is celebrated all over all the islands in the Archipelago of the Canaries. Apart from the inhabitants of the island, thousands of tourists are attracted by the fun and colours of the carnival celebrations too. Much of the spectacle of the carnival revolves around the Carnival Queen, who is elected in a grand gala that is held on a night that is considered one of the high points of the carnival. The funfairs are great for the kids but they do not normally get going until about 7pm. After the parade which tends to end at the open air party that has bands and musical tributes, the fun fair is here also and all the bars and restaurants normally have a stall down there too! This party doesn't normally get going until midnight and keeps going generally until the very early hours, literally 6-8am, so I would advise if you are thinking of partying hard with the locals then to join them in their tradition of a siesta!
This take's place, as above, over Febuary and March; here are the approx dates for the towns and villages in Fuerteventura that Carnival will happen, some take place over one day others - weeks!
In March or April usually happens Holy Week, throughout the Semana Santa you will be able to watch the solemn pre-Easter processions where where sacred icons and religious statues are carried through the streets of many villages and towns throughout the island.
