13 october 2022
The Adeje Patronal Fiestas will come to an end this weekend following two busy weeks of activities, and the final days will see tradition take centre stage, with a folklore festival and the Romería, on Saturday October 15th and Sunday October 16th respectively.
The 37th Adeje Town Folklore Festival will take place in the Plaza España from 9pm on Saturday evening, with the Adeje Municipal Folklore School taking to the stage as well as the Encantadoras Group.  The performance will be followed by a street party with music from Guayaba and Sensación Gomera groups.
Sunday is a busy day, with the farm animals fair in the El Cerco plaza (10am – 12 midday), a sung mass in the Santa Úrsula church at 11am, with farm produce offerings, and the traditional Romería (with oxen-drawn carts, decorated in Canarian colours, offering food and drink to passers-by) up the Calle Grande from 1pm.  After the main event there will be a day-time street party in the Plaza España with music from Wamampy and Corinto groups. 
As well as the more traditional events, on October 14th the recipients of the Abinque 2020 and 2021 prizes will receive their awards in person – the winners are the workers in the town’s public health centres, and journalist and television presenter Emilia González.
