Encuentro de Santeros
Domingo/Sunday - Dic 20, 2020
The annual meeting of the santeros takes place on the third Sunday of December.
Follow the directions to Museo Orocoveño Celestino Avilés Meléndez and find parking on the side of the road.
The event takes place between the museum and the US Post Office.
Serious collectors arrive early, but you'll enjoy music, food, fun and local culture all day. Its a great opportunity to meet the carvers, see examples of their work and purchase a santo for your collection!
