Fiesta San Ginés Arrecife

Fiestas de San Ginés, in August,  is the capital’s big fiesta of the year, and as you can imagine, it’s a fabulous party with an amazing atmosphere. Best of all, it lasts two weeks, with something exciting happening almost every day.

The fun fair will be there, close to The Cabildo building and the Grand Finale is always a huge party on the beach with live music and fireworks.

Fiestas de San Ginés is the fiesta for the Patron Saint of the capital of Lanzarote.
