The Embassy of Colombia, ProColombia and UNION MARKET invite you + family + friends to enjoy the rich culture and flavors of Colombia with music, dancing and tastings.
From 10am to 3pm there will be special performances by the Carnival of Pasto dancers and music from DC’s own Gaiteros de Sanguashington, also featuring traditional Tambores del Caribe (acoustic music from the coast of Colombia) and salsa dancing. ProColombia will offer tastings of several of Colombia’s signature foods.
Dating back to the 16th century, the Carnival of Pasto is Colombia’s largest carnival celebration in the South of the country and takes place in city of Pasto. The carnival dance honors the sun and moon and is a fusion of multiple rhythms from the Andes, the Amazon and the Pacific coast. A group of more than 20 performers in costume will dance and parade through the Union Market neighborhood.
See you Sunday April 22 for CARNIVAL!
