Here is further information on the Festival of the Ibero-American Culture in the City of Holguin, to be held from October 24th to the 30th, 2015, celebrating its 21st edition this year. The Festival is a comprehensive project of theoretical, artistic, socio-cultural, and community events that promotes dialogue, exchange and solidarity.
This celebration will have as central theme: Multiculturalism and alternative cultures.
Founded in 1545, Holguin is the region where the archaeological capital of Cuba, the largest aboriginal cemetery in Latin America, and the point of arrival of Christopher Columbus on October 28, 1492 are located. It is an ethnic melting pot with Iberian accent. This makes it the ideal setting for an Encounter of Cultures.

The 7th Artistic Solidarity Brigades;
The Ibero-American Colloquium of Letters;
The Ibero-American Display of Fine Arts "Electa Arenal Huerta"
