Cali Fair (Feria de Cali)
From: Tuesday, December 25 2007, 5:00 am
to: Tuesday, January 1 2008, 3:00 pm
Each Christmas Cali enjoys the rich festival programme that makes up one of Colombia's most renowned national events, the Cali Fair (Feria de Cali). The city proudly boasts the title of salsa capital of Colombia, if not the world, and unlike the many large Latin city fairs which concentrate on livestock, this event focuses on salsa parties and parades.
Salsa is not exclusively a Cuban phenomenon and Colombia has a well-established salsa scene. The fair's programme features a wealth of some 50 or so salsa acts, which can be seen performing day and night. Other events include a beauty pageant to select Señorita Cali, sports competitions, salsa and tango contests, a variety of parades and bullfights. Spice up your Christmas with the heat and swing of a real Colombian rumba!
