The El Cotillo Fiesta 2017 program of events has been released. This is taking place this year from 16th to 27th August.
The El Cotillo Fiesta 2017 highlights are:
22:30 until at least 03:00 – the first of the many music nights held in the church square behind the Cotillo Beach hotel featuring the group Kandela (I feel sorry for the guests staying there)
12:00 – Football C D Cotillo v CD Vera de Tenerife
21:00 – The traditional music and dancing evening on the quayside in the old harbour
23:30 until at least 05:00 – Music night in the church square featuring the groups Grupo LD and Grupo Arena
14:30 – the ceremony of the safe voyage where the statue of the virgin is carried to the old harbour and put onto one of the fishermen’s boats. It is then taken out to sea for a short trip, followed by all of the other fishermen’s boats. Well worth watching.
14:00 – the “foam party” mainly for the kids, held in the old harbour
18:00 – Miss El Cotillo contest in the old harbour
21:00 – Karate Exhibition in the old harbour
16:00-23:00 – Water festival in the old harbour
21:00 – Traditional fish meal in the old harbour with music
20:00 – the procession to take the statue of the virgin back to the church in El Roque
21:00 onwards – firework display in the old harbour – see video of past firework display
23:00-03:00 or later – Music in the church square with Star Music and Nuevo Klan
23:00-04:00 or later – Music in the church square with Codigo C-RO and Guira Latina
NOTE: These times should be used as a guide since they are “Spanish time” so any event during the El Cotillo Fiesta 2017 could start up to an hour later.
