International Folklore Festival

Dance to world music in Vigo

Vigo’s International Folklore Festival is a celebration of cultural diversity, a colourful exchange between music and dance artists from countries as diverse as Costa Rica, Senegal and Russia and, of course, Galician traditional dance companies.

The performances that make up this folklore festival in Vigo take place during the first week of August in several of Vigo’s neighbourhoods, and there is a great main event in the Mar de Vigo Auditorium. During six days, the city is filled with music and dance, welcoming up to 14 free performances included in the Vigo Festival programme
