Jenny Polanco is a well-known fashion designer locally and abroad for ready-to-wear and couture, what you may not know is that she also promotes all cultural events in the eastern region of the Dominican Republic, and invites us to a presentation by Koribe tomorrow night, June 11th at 7pm in La Aldea Cultural Santa Rosa de Lima as part of the activities of this year’s Fiestas Patronales of San Antonio de Padua.

As you are well aware, the Dominican Republic is known for its piety and cultural traditions, and every city has their own church with a saint’s name attached. Each year, individual communities celebrate fiestas patronales in honor of their patron saint of the Catholic Church. Currently ongoing until June 13th is the celebration for San Antonio de Padua, the Buena Vista Norte Patron Saint.

Everyday there are different activities both religious and cultural which we are all invited to. Tomorrow in La Aldea Cultural Santa Rosa de Lima, the Koribe choir of the Dominican Republic’s Ministry of Culture will perform. They are a group of very talented members who also performed at the cultural center’s inauguration back in 2014.

Join us and La Aldea Cultural Santa Rosa de Lima to honor and celebrate San Antonio de Padua, and also to continuing to support our cultural heritage promoted with such admiration by the center and Jenny Polanco. Don’t miss the impressive performance of Koribe tomorrow night at 7pm!!
