If expats cannot go to Guanacaste for the Anexión del Partido de Nicoya holiday, the Museo Nacional is bringing Guanacaste to San José. Or at least the Guanacaste culture.
The museum plans a Festival Puro Guanacaste Sunday with a presentation by the Ballet Folclórico Nacional and the group Folclórico La Trinidad.
Typical foods will be on sale, and the event is free for Costa Ricans and residents.
There also will be items on sale by artisans from Guanacaste, said the museum. The province is Costa Rica’s Wild West, so there are a lot of traditions unique to the region.
The Banda de Conciertos de San José will be there playing music composed by Guanacaste residents, the museum added.
The festival starts at 9 a.m. The group Folclórico La Trinidad from the school of the same name in Rosario de Desamparados takes the floor at 10 a.m. followed by the Banda de Conciertos at 11.
The 35 members of the Ballet Folclórico Nacional perform at 12:30 p.m.
