Colombian Independence Day

Colombia’s Independence day is this Sunday July 20th and there are a number of events around San Diego to celebrate the event.

First, The Casa de Colombia will be hosting a dance and food exhibition at Balboa Park’s International Cottages .  For those of you familiar with the International Cottages, you know that the organization is a consortium of "houses" that represent 32 countries here in San Diego.  The idea behind the International Cottages is to give a glimpse of the member countries culture, history, and traditions.  For Colombian Independence Day, there will be a lawn program on Sunday including performances by a dance and ballet group, Colombian musicians, and vocal entertainment all in the Colombian tradition.  The event begins at 11am.  I’ll be at this event wearing my traditional colombian vueltiao sombrero , so say hello if you see me.

The Casa de Colombia is later hosting an event at Cafe Sevilla , with featured guest Yari More and his orquesta, a dance class beginning at 6:45pm, complimentary Tapas Buffet until 7:30pm and DJ’s spinning Colombian salsa music throughout the night.  If you miss the event at Balboa Park, you can still learn about the Casa de Colombia and what they do for the local San Diego community at the information table they will be hosting at Cafe Sevilla.   I heard through my sources that there will be Aguardiente drink specials throughout the night…not to be missed!

Cover is only $8.00 but i heard you can get a discount entry if you wear anything with Colombian pride (T-shirts, paint your face, etc.), making it only $5.00.

For more information about these events please visit the Casa de Colombia website or Cafe Sevilla .
