Santo Domingo Colonial Fest

The Zona Colonial (colonial city) in Santo Domingo every year hosts the Santo Domingo Colonial Fest, the largest annual celebration of music, art, culture and history of the area. And this year we would like to extend the invitation to the community of Casa de Campo and La Romana to take part too – Dominican or not, a Dominican celebration of this scale is not to be missed!

The idea behind the Santo Domingo Colonial Fest to show both Dominican and foreign people what it means to be Dominican, the unique essence of the “Dominicanidad” – the roots and the beauty of our rich culture! The Santo Domingo Colonial Fest is a totally free experience and takes place over three days, this year on the 21st, 22nd and 23rd of November, with a jam-packed schedule from 4pm-midnight throughout the 3 day festival!
