International arts festival changes its location

Thousands of artists and artisans will take over the streets, parks, and cultural centers in San José for a 10-day arts festival from March 15 to 25.

This year the Festival Internacional de las Artes 2012 has changed it’s main location to Parque Metropolitano La Libertad in between Desamparados and La Únion, southeast of San José.

That part of the province isn’t much of a tourist spot like the former location in La Sabana. According to organizers of the event, a change in park was made for the locals to feel more comfortable in attending the festival. The festival is free.

The activities will run everyday from 8 a.m. to 9:30 p.m.

Activities include workshops, music, dance, vendors, food, theater, and art. Children can also enjoy their time there by participating in some of the kid-oriented courses and activities.

Either way a learning experience awaits everyone as Korea is the honored country at the international fair. There will be artisans, food, music and dance from the Asian country to celebrate their invitation.

In the past countries from Europe, Asia and the Americas have participated and this year there is no exception.
