Guía Cheese Festival (Fiesta del Queso de Guía)

The town of Santa María de La Guía on the island of Gran Canary holds its popular Cheese Festival during the last week of April. Flor de Guía cheese, made in the municipality, plays a leading role in activities such as competitions, tastings, street market, etc., that take place alongside others that showcase local folklore and culture. The cheese is half-fat and is made with vegetable rennet and a mix of sheep, goat and cow's milk.
