Fiestas de Maspalomas 2024 – Patron Saint Festivities of San Fernando

The Maspalomas neighbourhood of San Fernando, once a simple village of tomato growers, and sharecroppers, enjoys their patron saint’s celebrations from 23 May – 2 June 2024.

The festivities of San Fernando de Maspalomas will begin on Thursday, 23 May with a very special commemoration this year, the 50th Anniversary of the CEIP San Fernando de Maspalomas (better known as Maspalomas I). The importance of this educational centre lies in the fact that San Fernando is the origin of the residential part of the South of Gran Canaria, and a large part of today’s society has completed its first studies in this centre, which celebrated its first school year in 1973-1974.

There is also a Fun Fair set up in the area as well as party area with chirinquitos and DJs, just next to the municipal swimming pool
