Barrio Arts Fest has been celebrated for the past 12 years and among others, has showcased: Arts and Crafts from artists of Puerto Rico, art workshops of book making and Chiringas (kites), a creative writing workshop by Boca Floja sponsored by Batey Urbano and a Bomba dancing workshop by AfriCaribe.
