Calendar of Events

This calendar contains a sampling of events scheduled across the island. All are open to the public. Most require no reservations. Many are free. You can plan on attending at least one of these events during your visit to Puerto Rico so that you can get a sampling of the culture. You will likely find local food and music at almost all of these events. And where there’s music, there’s bound to be singing and dancing!

Double-check before going

The dates and times in this list are accurate to the best of our knowledge. But dates and times sometimes change at the last minute without any notice. We suggest calling ahead to make sure that the event you plan on attending is actually being held as published.

We have Lots of Holidays here

We’ve also included a list of holidays observed here in Puerto Rico. On some holidays (Good Friday comes to mind), the island virtually shuts down. If you’re planning on taking a tour or visiting an attraction on one of these holidays, we suggest that you call ahead just to make sure they’re going to be open.
