Events

Ironman Lanzarote

This triathlon is a dramatic sporting event in its purest form. The 1800 ironmen and ironwomen who participate this year, begin at 7 am to swim 2.4 miles, ride 112 miles on bicycle and end with a 26 mile marathon on foot. Attending this show of human endurance can give you a real adrenalin rush. The suffering that the sportsman goes through seems to be passed on to the audience who cheer him on, step by step, to reach the finishing line.

Carnival Lanzarote

During this festival, you might encounter Prime Minister Zapatero or the exact replica of José María Aznar or even, Charlot, Groucho Marx or Jim Carey from the movie Ace Ventura. However, watch out-evil characters can also make an appearance. It would not be strange to find Adolf Hitler, Darth Vader, Hannibal Lecter or Freddy Krueger sitting right next to you sipping a drink.

International Canaries Heineken Jazz Festival (Saturday, July 9)

In this 2011, the nineteenth edition of Jazz Festival Jazz & Mas Heineken Canarias will, as every year, a stop in Lanzarote. It will be on the evening of Saturday, July 9, but not in the historic Teguise, as usual, but in the center of the tent village in the center of the island. As of 21:00 pm performances Fatoumata Diawara, Brass Band and Nayaband Gangbé. The concert is free and is part of the Festival International de Jazz de Canarias.

The Malpaís Festival of Performing Arts or Festival de Artes Escénicas Malpaís

Despite its youth, only having previously hosted two events, Malpaís has become one of the most interesting and enriching parts of the island. The city of Arrecife, with a festival that has managed to become one of the most relevant of its nature in the Canary Archipelago, has become a reference point for these types of events in the Canaries. The street theater and circus shows, the puppets and mimes for the young audience, and the music and other cultural shows all bring a special energy to Lanzarote’s capital every March.

Swimming across El Río (September 28, 2013)

This lively sporting contest, organized by the Real Club Victoria from Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, takes place on the last Saturday of September every year. Participants have to swim a little under a mile, the distance that separates El Risco de Famara beach (Lanzarote) and Caleta del Sebo, on La Graciosa island of the Chinijo Archipelago (in the northeast of Lanzarote). All of those who have taken part have agreed that it is a very enjoyable experience and that it feels great to swim across the natural waters of the Parque Natural de Chinijo.

Festival de Los Dolores (September)

The most deeply rooted festival on the island is celebrated in the Tinajo area every September 15 in honor of the Virgen de los Dolores (Our Lady of Sorrows) or the Virgen de los Volcanes (Our Lady of the Volcanoes), who is the patroness of Lanzarote. People dressed in typical Lanzarotean clothing come from all over the island to take part in the procession. For a few days of the year the Mancha Blanca region in Tinajo is transformed into a center of traditional Canarian culture when the pilgrims come from other islands in the Archipelago to visit the chapel.
