Rainbow Fuerteventura, 2022

The municipality of La Oliva is filled with color to celebrate Rainbow Fuerteventura, an event organized by the Department of Tourism of the City Council of La Oliva and with the collaboration of the Tourist Board of the Cabildo Insular and ALTIHAY, and with which it is intended to promote Corralejo and Fuerteventura as an LGTBIQ+ destination, diverse and tolerant.

From December 2 to 5, Avenida Nuestra Señora del Carmen and the small pier of Corralejo will host the main events of this pride, such as the Tournament for Diversity or the “La Oliva Orgullosa” party.

“We must value the importance and relevance that the LGTBIQ+ community has had for our municipality, for this reason I invite all the local and visiting population from both the municipality of La Oliva and the island of Fuerteventura to attend this event that is so important for the visibility of the collective” pointed out the mayoress of the municipality, Pilar González.

For his part, the Councilor for Tourism, Celino Umpiérrez, declared that “working together to strengthen this image of a diverse and tolerant destination that is already a reality with groups like ALTIHAY is of vital importance, and La Oliva has always had the open arms to host events related to the group, thus being able to create a safe and comfortable environment for the community”.
