The best performers, from all over the world display their talents during the festival. For several days, the streets of Puerto de la Cruz are filled with eye-catching art. Since 2000 the resorts has strived to become the largest open air theatre in the world and has been successful as the event is now a major cultural landmark and one of the most popular events on the island.

Theatre, dance, circus, music, comedy, and storytelling are the main artistic disciplines. Jugglers, comedians, acrobats, and courageous tightrope walkers on almost invisible cables complete a programme suitable for all tastes and all audiences. All to the beat of music played by well-known local groups.

Thousands of people (last year 70,000) attended the four-day Festival. Not understanding the language presents no barriers, Mueca is truly international entertainment and perfect for the whole family.

If you are in Puerto de la Cruz, make yourself at home and join in the open-air fun.
