Phoenix Festival de España

The Phoenix Festival de España makes its debut in downtown Phoenix on Saturday, March 22, with a daylong celebration of Spanish arts and culture, courtesy of Flamenco Por La Vida and the Phoenix Center for the Arts.

The warm weather event includes a beer and wine garden, traditional food, and flamenco workshops for all skill levels. Festival-goers can enjoy an arts market and intermittent performances from Macarena Giraldez, Jason Martinez, and Angelina Ramirez.

The heritage appreciation includes a lecture on Northern Spanish culture from Petra Conde of the Asociación Cultural Española de Arizona, a lecture on flamenco history led by Erica Ocegueda, and ends with a performance from Third Street Theater's flamenco troupe.

Join the fun from noon to 9 p.m. on Saturday, March 22, at the Phoenix Center for the Arts, 1202 North Third Street. Admission is free, but the Noche de Flamenco performance costs $15. Call 602-254-3100 or visit www.phoenixcenterforthearts.org/events/phoenix-festival-de-espana. -- Janessa Hilliard
