Festival of Ciudad Sandino Pride

Create a Festival celebrating positive culture & history of the city & creating an annual tradition.

Ciudad Sandino is lacking in recreational activities & up until now has not had a municipal festival to attract tourists from other cities to enjoy sandinense culture. The image that Ciudad Sandino has at a national level is negative. This project worked together with civic groups and the municipality to organize a Festival that celebrates positive aspects of Ciudad Sandino and provides economic opportunities for local artisans. The 1st Festival was held in May 2016, and already a cross-community group is planning a larger Festival for the next year! During the 1st Festival we accomplished the following: +1,000 spectators enjoyed the 6 hour long cultural show; 100 exhibitors participated with 14 Stands from civic groups; 200 artists participated with 8 groups in the cultural show; 8 participants in the Traditional Culinary Arts Contest; 6 VIP invitees participated from the municipality, civic groups and local businesses; 9 sponsors supported the Festival.
