Tejeda Almond Blossom Festival 2024

The 51st edition of the Almond Blossom Festival in Tejeda between 27 January – 4 February 2024. 

“The first weekend of February on Gran Canaria marks the almond blossom festival celebrated in Tejeda. The flowering of the almond trees in the middle of winter, most years as January ends and on into February, heralds the imminent arrival of Spring and, for the communities of the island’s summits, makes the Almendros in Flor perhaps the most important “pagan” celebration of the island’s flowering fields.”

Fiestas del Almendro en Flor Tejeda, one of the most popular festivities during the winter season on Gran Canaria is one of the most wonderful events to visit at this time of year. Almond trees blossoming up in the mountains daubing the beautiful spring scenery in an experience most definitely worth the drive along the island’s oldest roads.

In the past editions of “Fiesta del Almendro en Flor, Tejeda”, there have been countless people coming to Tejeda from around the island, from other islands, from the national territory, and from other countries. This celebration, which started as a local party sponsored by tejedenses still young at that time, has grown in unimaginable ways, becoming what is today a benchmark in terms of esencia of canariedad, the essence of canarianism, expressed through music, dance, food, crafts and local autonomous sports.
