Events will take place in the church plaza, and this year there will be no firework display

22 august 2023
Hoya Grande is preparing to celebrate its annual fiesta in honour of La Virgen de la Milagrosa. Events will be in and around the church plaza with a programme of activities for all the family, cultural, religious, musical, and sporting.
The fiestas commission, in accordance with the Adeje council, have taken the decision to cancel the firework display that would normally form part of the celebrations. The decision was taking in solidarity with the towns on the island currently at risk given the forest fire. They also took into account the requirement that there be fire-fighters on hand if there is any fireworks display, and it was agreed that they are currently needed elsewhere!
