Fiestas de San Gregorio 2023 – Telde

Telde is celebrating Fiestas de San Gregorio between 10-19 November 2023

Fiesta en honor de San Gregorio Taumaturgo 2023. The main feast day is on the 17th of November, which is also a local bank holiday in the municipality. In the past the festivities were held that day in Los Llanos de Jaraquemada, what used to be the farming and craft centre of the city, now a shopping area. This fiesta is a fine example of leisure activities combined with the recovery of long-standing traditions like the livestock fair, one of the largest on Gran Canaria.

Church of San Gregorio Taumaturgo. A neo-classical church built by Diego Nicolas Eduardo, located in the square of the same name. A large number of neoclassical altarpieces inside – the works of Arencibia Gil – contain an important legacy of sculptures, including the figure of San Gregorio Taumaturgo by Jose Lujan Perez.

 

There is also a Fun Fair “los Cochitos” set up at Ramblas de Pedro Lezcano Montalvo between 10-19 November 2023
