Over 100 activities, a dynamic market, live shows, practical classes and workshops throughout the weekend.
For the past 7 years Arte Sano festivals have been bringing healing arts events to San Pedro Alcantara, and during the first weekend of December (the ‘puente’) will be celebrating the ninth edition of this popular event in the ‘Carpa’ municipal in the town’s feria ground.
“Many people are looking for new ways of living these days,” explains Monica Bereuther, one of the organisers. “Arte Sano is a great place for people to come and find out about the latest in natural and organic products, have a go at a class or activity they have heard about or sit in on one of the many talks.” The market is central to the busy atmosphere of the festival, bringing together the creative and healing arts under one roof, while the dozens of activities that run throughout the weekend give people plenty to do. From Yoga to Tai Chi there are classes for all ages, and talks on a wide range of subjects from nutrition to spirituality.
This year the organisers have once again teamed up with ‘La Casa Verde’, an educational project based in Coin, to bring an exciting mix of activities just for younger visitors. Apart from providing a chill out area for parents to find out more about the Montessori education method and the work of ‘La Casa Verde’, the kids’ area will have lots of practical workshops, games and fun stuff as well as theatre and magic shows. With the kids happy, parents can enjoy browsing the market for unique gifts, as Christmas is just round the corner. Everyone always enjoys the selection of fine wholesome food from the healthy eating terrace, which provides a place to stop and chat in between activities.
Arte Sano festivals provide a reference point for anyone interested in natural and ‘green’ living, but they are also a local event bringing together the residents of San Pedro to enjoy something different. The organisers also support local charities and in previous years have been delighted to hand over thousands of euros to their chosen local charities, like Aspandem or Cudeca. This year they will be supporting Construye Mundo
So whether you are looking to expand your horizons, try out some new classes, enjoy tasty food, meet up with friends old and new or support your local charities, Festival Arte Sano will provide something for everyone on the last weekend in November
