Every year, the Caribbean Festival is reinvented with new and attractive actions that continue consolidating it as a favorite event for santiagueros and visitors. For this edition of the Fiesta, a special artistic program has been designed that involves more than twenty stages, including outdoor and indoor. This will keep the city in constant floods of joy and fun. But the Festival will also extend beyond the historic city. That is why we will reach each community of the Santiago Arde project and extend, for the first time in thirty-eight years, to the Segundo Frente and Tercer Frente municipalities.
More than twenty-five countries will meet in Santiago de Cuba. Around eight hundred artists will bring diverse expressions of their culture and history. The Puerto Rican delegation is announcing they will bring more than two hundred participants, which will allow having a wide range of the cultural diversity of that country.
The Caribbean Festival has been recognized as the only time of the year in which the largest number of expressions of traditional popular culture meets in Cuba. According to this news, a large number of bearers and performers will be visiting us. Energy, drums and mysticism will be felt again in the Cuban capital of the Caribbean from July 3 to 9, 2018.
