The Government of the City of Buenos Aires organizes the Immigrants Day Celebration, with an open air festival at the park surrounding the Planetarium Galileo Galilei (Av. Sarmiento & Figueroa Alcorta), on Sunday, September 23, 2012.
Groups representing the different communities that reside in the city of Buenos Aires will offer their typical dances, gastronomy and culture, in an event for the whole family.
At 11 am, representatives of the different communities will participate in a parade around the Rose Garden's lake with their typical costumes.
On a large stage at the Planetarium, over 40 dance and music shows by 500 artists from 60 communities will be presented throughout the day.
There will stands offering typical crafts, regional products, and traditional food and drinks.
The "Immigrants Day" was instituted on September 4, 1949, with the purpose of paying a permanent and public tribute to the immigrants of all times.
The celebrations will start at 11.00 am.
