More than 15,000 people celebrated St. Patricks Day in Puerto del Carmen, Lanzarote

Puerto del Carmen, in Tías, celebrated St. Patrick’s Day, on the 16th and 17th of March in honour of the patron saint of Ireland, with a great liveliness in the streets and pubs and more attendance than ever in this event, the most eagerly awaited by the Irish community. This well-known Lanzarote town, much loved by the Irish, was decked out in green with an extensive programme of events organised by the Town Hall of Tías and the Cabildo of Lanzarote, in collaboration with various entities and companies. An impressive parade enthralled thousands of spectators and stood out as one of the highlights of the year. This celebration exceeded the expectations of previous years by gathering more than 15,000 people at the Plaza del Varadero.

Early in the morning, residents and tourists joined together to commemorate St. Patrick, patron saint of Ireland, and enjoy the vibrant festivities that characterise this event. The festival kicked off on Saturday 16, featuring a cultural exchange between local and Irish groups until midnight, including performances by Celtic roots groups, folk group Güerma, Screensavers and tributes to Tina Turner, Queen and U2.

On 17 March a parade was held in the Avenida de las Playas with music, floats, classic cars, motorbikes, dance groups and giant ladies. In addition, in the Plaza del Varadero, Irish and Canarian gastronomy was enjoyed with live music, with the participation of Rythm Republic, Gayle O’Donovan, Dessie Hynes, Beatrice Senent and other artists.

Without a doubt, St. Patrick’s Day in Puerto del Carmen was a resounding success, exceeding all expectations compared to previous years and demonstrating once again the cultural richness and hospitality of this coastal town in Lanzarote.
