The Adeje department of culture has a host of activities planned for May under the title “Adeje vive las tradiciones” (Adeje, bringing traditions to life).
In the town’s cultural centre until May 15 there is a delightful exhibition of work from the San Juan centre, “Cuéntame un cuento” (Tell me a story), which the kids will certainly enjoy.
On Friday May 8th the public can enjoy Arabian Nights, an evening of dance, acrobatics, magic and music, also in the Adeje cultural centre, at 8.30pm, (€8).
The XV Adeje Arts and Craft fair takes place on Saturday and Sunday May 16thand 17th, in the Plaza de España with a range of stalls selling hand crafted goods, folklore performances, food stalls, etc. On May 20th the foodie theme continues with a dessert workshop making ‘chasnera’ cakes (with almonds), and that takes place in the CDTCA.
On May 28th there are a series of healthy-inducing events, with solidarity pilates, massages and a zumba class, all taking place in the Adeje Cultural Centre, monies going to local charitable causes.
The month finishes with some fun events, the Baile de Magos, or traditional Canarian costume dance, held in the Plaza de España on May 29th (just ahead of Canaries Day which is May 30th) – and you have to dress traditionally to take part, but entry is free, and this is a lovely evening for all the family. Book a table with the department of Culture if you are interested.
On May 30th La Caleta hosts the II Festival Imoque with performances from Los Cebolleros from Galdar and el Zumacal from Gran Canaria and with Alba Pérez and José Manuel Ramos. And the month ends with a concert for Canaries Day on May 31st at 11.30am in the Plaza de San Sebastián, La Caleta with the Adeje Municipal Band.
