San Sebastián, Adeje pays homage

adeje-san sebastian (205) adeje-san sebastian (277)

With Christmas and the Three Kings celebrations out of the way Adeje is now ready for the next annual fiesta –that of the town’s co-patron, San Sebastián.

This is one of the most popular and engaging fiestas in Tenerife, with the bathing of horses and other four-legged mounts at the La Enramada beach the highlight of the festivities. According to the councillor for culture, Nayra Medina Bethencourt, “San Sebastián is a perfect coming together of people who live in Adeje and those who are visiting the borough. The plaza de San Sebastián in La Caleta is the perfect stage for this celebration of harmonious co-existence on January 20th”. And this year too the borough begins to celebrate the 100th year of the presence of the statue of San Sebastián which is carried ceremoniously to the sea, brought to the parish in 1916 by the parish priest of the time, Eulogio Gutiérrez Estévez.

In fact the celebrations begin on Monday January 19th with a two-day open air exhibition of municipal photographs. The ‘pinchos’ competition also returns. Pinchos are small tapas on a cocktail stick, cheap and tasty, and ideal for eating on the street. You can vote for your favourite pincho from 7pm to midnight. Mass with the Santa Ana folklore group in honour of San Sebastián will be celebrated at 8pm followed by a procession with the Adeje Municipal Band, and fireworks.

From 7pm there will also be a ‘Parrandas’ evening, with small music groups playing in public, among them the Paranda Boleros de Armeñime, G. F. La Diata, A. C. Cultural Imoque, the Parranda El Mesturao and the Adeje Municipal Folklore group.

The 20th of January is the actual feast day of San Sebastián and events begin at 12 midday with mass in honour of the Saint sung by the Santa Úrsula de Adeje parochial choir. The procession with the image of the saint then moves outside and takes the pilgrims down to La Enramada beach where the crowds will be waiting to see the traditional bathing of the horses, and quite often a few donkeys and maybe a camel or two.

This is a fiesta stepped in local traditions and was first celebrated here in the 18th century. Over the years country people and local Adeje farmers and beyond continued with their devotions to the saint in a very particular and special way. Many have attributed miracles to the statue of San Sebastián, including cures and favours granted.

Security
Given that up to 20,000 people take part in the celebrations every year, the council has made sure there will be more than adequate security cover, with personnel from the Policia Local, the Civil Protection Unit, the Sea Rescue service, ambulances and health professionals. Please take note of any access restrictions on the streets or on the beach in advance of the procession as they are there for the public’s security.

Some parking restrictions will be in place to facilitate free flow of traffic and allow people walk along the streets. There will also be a zone cordoned off for farm animals who are taking part in the festivities.

People are also reminded that they should come in time to park and walk, wear clothes and shoes that are comfortable, use sun cream (particularly with children) and bring water. If you are bringing you own pet/animal they must be on a lead and bring food and water for them too.

Traditional end to Adeje’s Fiestas

IMG_2380-w1500

The Adeje Patronal Festival 2014, which this year has been based on ‘convivencia’, or togetherness, co-existence, will reach its conclusion this weekend, October 18th and 19th, with the Folklore Festival on Saturday and the Romería, on Sunday.

On Saturday October 18th the XXX Festival de Folklore Villa de Adeje will present “Un alma, una fe, un anhelo” (A soul, a faith, a yearning), with the group from the Adeje Municipal Folklore School, and the participation of the Lus Yerbatus Cultural Association from Bimenes in Austria. The show tells the story of a young man from an agricultural background who, in 1940, leaves these shores for the Americas in search of a better life. The wider theme of emigration is explored through the music of the continents, looking at the hopes and dreams of those who went and the pain of leaving family behind.
The evening’s events will begin at 9pm in the Plaza de España and be followed by a street party with music from the popular Sensación Gomera.

On Sunday October 19th, the last day of the Adeje Patronal Festivals, there will be a Cattle Fair in the Plaza del Cerco (beside the main post office) from 10am to 12 midday. At 11am there will be a special mass in the parish church in the Calle Grande and the offering of locally grown produce to the ‘patrons’ of the borough, Our Lady of the Incarnation, Saint Ursula and Saint Sebastian.

IMG_2410-w1500

This year the Adeje ‘romería’ or pilgrim march will see 12 floats pulled by harnessed animals. Folk groups from different parts of the island are taking part as are local associations from Adeje and neighbouring boroughs. And all those who do take part must be dressed in traditional costume. The Adeje cultural department also invites the homes along the street to decorate their balconies in traditional form to add to the atmosphere.

IMG_2571-w1500

The Adeje romería has a long established tradition and every year both residents and visitors to the borough enjoy the day, happy to accept the offer of wine and food from the floats. Fun and tradition combine to make this a colourful family event. If you are driving to the town and are early enough you should be able to park near the health centre, or in the cemetery car park and walk up to the Calle Grande before the start of the events.

Viva San Sebastián

ADEJE - SAN SEBASTIAN (20)
Adeje was buzzing with over 20,000 pilgrims yesterday as the small town of La Caleta hosted one of the borough’s most popular feast-days, San Sebastián.
Residents from the borough’s multicultural hub mixed with tourists – though the confused group of German ramblers looking at the bus timetable just outside the Church in the San Sebastián plaza were in for a long wait –and many people also brought their pets down for the traditional blessing after midday mass.
San Sebastián is one of Adeje’s patron saints and each year his feast day is celebrated through mass, song, and the hugely popular riding of horses down to the at La Enramada beach for a bathe as the statue of the saint is also carried down to the water’s edge. San Sebastián is one of the oldest fiestas in Tenerife and certainly one of the most original, and this year didn’t disappoint the thousands who were there to capture the special moments.
Adeje’s councillor for culture, Nayra Medina Bethencourt, said she was delighted with the participation of people from all over the island and beyond, adding that there was noticeably more pets and horse riders than last year. “The feast of San Sebastián has been celebrated here since the 18th century and has always been a celebration of harmonious co-existence. Every year more and more people come to seek the blessing and protection of our Saint. This is, without doubt, one of the most enjoyed fiestas in South Tenerife, and we are always looking ahead to make sure that future generations continue to celebrate the tradition”.
After the trip to the sea, the statue returned to the plaza and the blessing of animals took place, with dogs, cats, turtles, hamsters, birds and goats among the recipients.
This year the council also organised a tapas/pinchos competition among the restaurants providing food and drink during the festival, with the public voting. There was a draw, with stalls from Fañabé and Taucho both delighting the public’s taste buds.
Other participants in the weekend event included many small local traditional singing groups, and the stand for the Adeje Clean and Healthy campaign was also a draw, with information leaflets on the ongoing campaign available to the public in English, Spanish, German and French as well as presentation dog collars and reusable shopping bags,
Mention also has to be made of the excellent work done by all the local security forces. The police kept the streets clear with good humour and friendliness, and the work of the local Civil Protection unit on the beach was perfectly firm but sympathetic to the many members of the public who were jostling for best position as the horses made their way to the water.
All in all another great day for people and animals, and already looking forward to next year.

Riders To The Sea

san seb

On Monday Adeje celebrates the feast of San Sebastián, one of the most popular fiesta days in South Tenerife.

One of the many lovely things about living here is the perfectly acceptable combination of religious and popular festivities, and San Sebastián is no exception, After the solemn mass in the church in La Caleta on Monday, there will be the traditional blessing of the animals – and many people bring their dogs and other four legged friends to the plaza for the event, to join the sheep, goats, oxen, donkeys and horses there. Following this there is the highly anticipated and iconic riding of the horses into the sea at La Enramada beach, always a spectacle and usually with a surprise or two – last year a camel joined the equine wave.

Tourists Enjoy Adeje Romería

Adeje said Adios to the locals Fiestas yesterday with a colourful Romería enjoyed by thousands who lined the main street to see the floats and agricultural carriages pass by with hundreds of Adejeros and visiting participants in traditional dress.
Adeje mayor José Miguel Rodríguez Fraga said it was a “splendid event with high levels of participation and a lot of foreign visitors and tourists which we value greatly as we welcome their participation”. He added, “this is a delightful fiesta and a day which is full of giving by the Adeje community, displaying Canarian hospitality at its best, sharing the produce of the land with everyone”.
The mayor of the Galician town of Riveira, which is twinned with Adeje, who was an invited guest to the event, said he was very pleased to be here taking part in a festival that was emblematic of the culture and traditions of the area, and was proud to take part in traditional Canarian attire.
The traditional parade of agricultural floats attended by different local groups, who offered passers by samples of local food and drink ended at the Santa Ursula church where there were musical and dance homage to the Virgen de la Encarnación, Santa Úrsula and San Sebastián.
A fitting end to a very successful and eventual two weeks of celebrating what is both traditional and modern about Adeje.

Adeje Fiestas Fun

This weekend sees the local Adeje fiestas really take off, with a host of events scheduled from Friday to Monday, which is a local fiesta with schools and many businesses closed.

On Saturday from 9am the Cross event takes place – you can sign up on the morning with categories from junior to senior, with races from 10am.

On the same morning there is also an exhibition of classic Volkswagen cars in the car park in front of the town’s main post office.

From 6.30pm on Saturday evening there will be performances from different local bands, and later on the main parade up the Calle Grande from 8.30 with lots of local groups, dancers, cheerleaders, fun and famous figures taking part not to mention an estimated 96 kilos of sweets to be handed out. The evening ends with music and dancing in the Plaza de España with the Orchestra Sensación Gomera.

Sunday is the day dedicated to the  Virgen de La Encarnación with various religious events taking place and a procession through the main streets of the town.

From 10pm the Plaza de Espana will enjoy a tribue concert by Esther Ovejero to Cavela Vargas, with the Wamampy orchestra bringing the evening’s events to a close.

Monday October 14th is a local holiday and is Dia de Santa Ursula. From 11am there will be children’s activities bouncy castles, and attractions in the plaza.  At six o’clock there will be a decade of the rosary and a mass in honour of Santa Ursula, followed by fireworks.

That evening promises a lot of laughs with a festival of humour in the Plaza de España:

ADEJE-PRESENTACION MISS SUR (5) ADEJE-PRESENTACION MISS SUR (1)
As part of the Adeje local fiestas the Miss Sur contest will take place in the Plaza de España, just beside the church at the top of the Calle Grande, on Friday October 18th. Yesterday the contestants posed for photographs for local press at Siam Park in the company of Adeje mayor José Miguel Rodríguez Fraga, cultural councillor Adolfo Alonso, Siam Park owner Christoph Kiessling and the event organiser Sandro Pérgola.
This is the second year the event will be held in Adeje. The mayor said that last year’s event had been a huge success and very popular with the public, “and we are delighted to welcome back the event as part of our local celebrations that are taking place at the moment”. He added that the competition was perfectly designed to fit in to the theme of the fiestas this year, Tradition and Modernity, as well as continuing to promote Adeje as a top quality tourist destination.
“These are not just beautiful young women, they are students, workers, professionals striving to succeed. This competition will also open doors for them in the competitive world of fashion and teach them about working in a team”.
Sandro Pérgola, the Miss Sur organiser, thanked the local administrations of Adeje, Arona, San Miguel de Abona, Santiago del Teide, Fasnia and Güímar for their co-operation as well as Siam Park, Shark, Bualá, Fraya, Dolores Cortes, Helidream Canarias, Grupo Gomasper, Centro Comercial Gran Sur, Mirador de El Galeón, Dreamplace Hotels, Spa Vitanoba, Océanos Combustibles, Bar El Cine, Gourmetland, Esquivel Bus, Flipper Uno, Damiroal, G & G Agencia Publicitaria, la Cueva Gráfica, Me lo quedo, Soy Digital, Radio Sur Adeje, Joa Rubio fotografía, Vivo y Rene, Óscar Cabrera, Peluquería Arsal, HD Producciones, and Sonoplus Canarias and Grupo Camia, the travel agency which has donated a Mediterranean cruise as the top prize for the winner.
Unlike many other beauty competitions Miss Sur also acts as a promotional platform for the different boroughs in South Tenerife. In the case of Adeje the candidates have participated in a report on the delights of Costa Adeje which will be shown during the competition and subsequently on local television throughout the islands.
Miss Sur 2013 takes place on Friday October 18th, in the Plaza de España, starting at 9pm, and is open to the public at no charge. The 19 candidates, representing the southern boroughs and private companies are Yosleidi Luis, Coraima Afonso, Fiorella Trevisani, Luciana Hurtado, Lorena de Souza, Celia Torres, Jessica Hernández, Nidia Delgado, Yasmina Toali, Nieves Lugo, Sophie Abreu, Vaittiare Álvarez, Paula Arzola, Erika Montañez, Dahiana Romero, Jodie Ariu, Karina Baracka, Ylenia Padilla and Gabriela Oliveros.
