international tran 2020 clown festival

TRAN TRAN International Clown Festival 2020
The Tran Tran International Festival celebrates in 2020 its ten years spreading smiles

Ten years ago a group of neighbours from Tuineje launched an initiative that sought to do something different and novel. Ten years later, they have succeeded. The Tran Tran International Clown Festival celebrates this 2020 its first decade cultivating smiles.

The City Council of Tuineje has presented the poster at the International Tourism Fair Fitur 2020, which is held this week in Madrid. "Tran Tran is part of the magic of our municipality, because it has a lot of the way of being of the people of Tuineje and that is why it has managed to consolidate and be already, also, an appointment in Calendar of Events of tourist interest," Esther said Hernández, mayor of Tuineje.

The City Hall of Tourism, Yurena Vera, took advantage of the presentation in Fitur to underline the “importance that the family and active tourism segment has for Tuineje, especially since a large part of our hotel offer also focuses on that segment, therefore, festivals like Tran Tran, they are also another piece of that tourist product offered by the municipality ”.

Last year's edition brought more than 23,000 people to Gran Tarajal, highlighting the quality of the participating companies and artists, with more than 6 shows and performances by 36 companies and more than 150 artists in addition to the number of shows, new stages, shops involved, impact on media and communication, citizen involvement and impact at national and international level.

Tran Tran has two very differentiating aspects. It is a family festival where the clown and the clown are the protagonists and it is intended for a family audience, where both children and adults have activities and shows to enjoy and spend a different weekend.

The tenth edition of the Clown Festival will be held on September 4th, 5th and 6th, 2020 in Gran Tarajal.

Good question, Julie. It all depends on the COVID situation but until today, haven't came across any confirmation since the last one in January, nor any cancellation. I'm sure it'll get clearer, at the end of next month.

Thanks for your reply Sam, was hoping some sort of news,  as only about 6 weeks away.

Its a great event , wanted to book a room to stay over this year.

Really in my heart of hearts as 23,000 attended last year, I can't see it going ahead, such a shame as the 10 year Anniversary.

Let's stay optimistic. They tend to announce things on the island even less than a couple of weeks ahead, making any kind of planning next to impossible Big Grin

Tran Tran festival bets in this edition for a broadcast through the Network

A television set specially decorated with circus motifs will be the place chosen for the celebration of the tenth anniversary of the Fuerteventura International Clown Festival on September 4 and 5, under the name of “Tran Tran TV, the television of laughter and participation ”.

"The special situation we are experiencing this year has made the organization, made up of the Culture Area of the Tuineje City Council, Hospitrán and the team of volunteers, with the collaboration of the Cabildo de Fuerteventura, have opted for this format", they explain.

However, they emphasize that “the values that identify Tran Tran” will continue to be promoted, such as “popular participation and involvement, social commitment, promotion of the Island, humour, joy and enjoyment of the cultural product”.

In this edition, for the first time, the cartoon of the image of the festival, the clown Chanita, with the number "Dance with the little clown Chanita", a documentary video about the 10 years of Tran Tran will be presented.

The didactic sheets of the Chanita the clown will also be made again, addressed to all the schools on the island of Fuerteventura, although this year, as the beginning of the school year does not coincide with the festival, they will be handed out afterwards, "giving the clown Chanita the welcome to all the boys and girls to school ”.
