Festival of arts will attract more than 1,000 performers from 32 countries

Organizers say that 1,125 national and international artists will participate in the Festival Internacional de las Artes 2014 that begins March 25.

This is an elaborate event for Costa Rica with venues through the capital.

Organizers outlined the festival Thursday. They predict 334 presentations by artists from 32 countries. The bulk of the activity will be from April 4 to 13.

The festival received 900 million colons, about $1.8 million from the Ministerio de Cultura y Juventud and also support from the Fundación Pro Festival de las Arte, which is lining up sponsors.

This is the festival’s 14th year.

The Antigua Aduana in the east and Parque la Sabana in the west will be the main locations for the presentations and events. The festival will promote the use of the valley train line to connect both sites.
