In 2011, this festival was declared a Festival of Regional Tourist Interest by the Government of the Canary Islands, hence, a list of activities has been devised to promote this municipality of the island’s medians year after year.

The main day of festivities in honour of Our Lady of the Incarnation is always the first Sunday in October. This year it’s the 3rd.
