Romerias de Mayo festival: 3 – 8 May 2018
Travellers looking for authentic insight into Cuban culture can look no further than the Romerias de Mayo festival in Holguín. This eclectic arts and culture celebration takes place every May in Holguín, a charming city set in the lush, beautiful and less-visited East of the island. The festivities are led by the Hermanos Saíz Association, a group of young Cuban artists who celebrate and share the work of local musicians, actors, writers and dancers. Concerts, art exhibitions, debates, workshops, film screenings, readings and more take place across the city with performances from Cuban heroes and international guests alike. Events close with a lively parade; colourful ribbons are tied around trees and many revellers dress up or paint their bodies in vibrant hues.
