Cabildo de Gran Canaria and Teror City Council have definitively agreed not to carry out on September 7, the eve of the Day of Our Lady of the Pine, the Patron Saint of Gran Canaria, any model of a reduced character of traditional offering, as had been considered at the beginning. Both the current health situation on the island of Gran Canaria and the restrictions imposed by level 3 to which the island is subjected, advise the suspension of the romería that was considered in its day as a symbolic event that would have an eminently institutional character in which a reduced representation of all the municipalities of the island was present.

The Cabildo Gran Canaria, despite not celebrating romería, the pilgrimage, maintains the program of cultural activities that have traditionally been developed within the framework of the festivities, such as the 29th edition of the Folklore Festival of Gran Canaria on September 6, and the 32nd edition of the Teresa de Bolívar Popular Music Meeting, on September 11.

Both events, free of charge, will take place in limited spaces that will comply with the current regulations on reduced capacity, allowing the organization both to control public access and to comply with distance regulations and covid protocols.
