Colombia’s culture is a mixture of many great things—from its cuisine (Ajiaco or arepa anyone?), to its cumbia and vallenato music. And Colombian festivals let you sample a little bit of everything the diverse country has to offer. Lucky for you, Colombian culture is widespread, so you might be able to stumble upon a Colombian festival nearby. Encuentro NYC Colombian Music Festival in New York is brimming with everything from jazz to contemporary music. The Colombian Film Festival in New York tells the story of Colombian culture on the big screen. Then there’s Houston Colombian Fest International, which celebrates Colombia’s Independence Day. And that’s just scraping the surface when it comes to Colombian culture.
