A free festival at the National Cultural Center (CENAC) in downtown San José will feature Afro-Costa Rican, indigenous, Spanish, Italian, Jewish and Chinese cultural offerings and traditions, including music, dance, food and more, all in preparation for the upcoming Cultures Day. The packed agenda includes a workshop for kids on Saturday at 11:30 am (Friday, October 7 – Sunday, October 9).
The Shnit is back!

Celebrate tonight with a party at Hoxton in Barrio Dent; check out the festival website for listings; and keep an eye out for our look at some of the festival’s best (through Sunday, October 9).
