The neighbourhood of El Rincón de Tenteniguada, on Sunday 19 May 2024, presents a special day where rural customs and crafts of the Canary Islands come together on the XIV Día de la Tradiciones “Day of Traditions”, in this delightful little corner of the south-east mountain area overlooking Valsequillo and Telde. 

The old trades and characters of a time-gone-by will appear in a live recreation of a traditional agricultural life that began to disappear back in the 1950s. The “Day of Traditions” relives the characteristic bustle of fieldwork and returns to where the neighbours gathered to thresh or strip. A set of scenes will recall images from another era where you will see the land being plowed with a team and how branches and young crops were planted in this month of May. An event in which new generations may be impregnated with the ethnography and popular culture of the Canary Islands.

On this occasion, this day is dedicated to working the land and traditional trades, with a walking route, through various emblematic moments in living memory. Through the different streets of the neighbourhood will be where we see threshing, plowing, shepherds, and the work of the field as well as crafts in exhibition. The whole tour will be animated with music from different music groups that will perform throughout the day.
