The National Museum of Puerto Rican Arts and Culture is organizing the 19th edition of its signature festival called BARRIO ARTS FEST! This yearly summer event brings together a selection of local artists and craft makers, food vendors, dancers, and music performers and family workshop activities for the community to enjoy. During the weekend of July 13th and 14th, the museum will turn into a family gathering space that extends through the museum premises, including the museum facility keeping the galleries open as well. Come for a weekend of local talent in a family friendly environment!
