Two-Venue Cárcamo Festival to Open after Two-Year Suspension
By THE PULSE NEWS MEXICO STAFF
Mexico’s third annual Cárcamo Music Festival will be held simultaneously in the National Center for the Arts (Cenart) and on the Tlaloc Fountain Plaza in Chapultepec Park on Saturday, April 23, and Sunday, April 24, starting at noon each day.
The family-oriented festival, which is open to all free-of-charge, will include performances of tango dancing by the Spanish troupe La Bomba Theater, Latin jazz by the Daniel Vadillo Quintet, a piano concerto by Daniel Vadillo, a set by Mestijazz and a live circus on Sunday, as well as a series of other musical surprises.
Organized by the Mexico City Culture Secretariat, the festival, which was first held in 2019, was suspended in 2020 and 2021 due to the covid-19 pandemic.
The Tláloc Fountain, designed by Mexican artist Diego Rivera in 1952, was recently restored as part of a citywide program sponsored by the capital’s government.
