Fuerteventura Events Calendar

FUERTEVENTURA EVENTS

There are many regular events on Fuerteventura, such as town and village Fiestas and Carnivals; plus other events that are arranged by the local municipalities and other organisations. This Calendar of events lists out the ones that I know about, and it will be updated throughout the year as more details are announced.
