ABOUT THE FESTIVAL

 

“Fall for Flamenco Festival' is a cultural, educational and artistic event that enriches the surrounding community and region. Flamenco is for everyone. Flamenco is a way of life. We hope you will join us for a passionate and unique experience and fall for flamenco! Fall for flamenco. Feel the passion.”Maria Osende, Artistic Director

 

The Fall for Flamenco Festival is an annual international music, dance and cultural event that takes place each fall in Halifax, Canada. The festival offers many fun activities, concerts and performances that centre around the powerful, centuries old gypsy tradition—flamenco. We offer workshops, beginner classes and master classes in dance, guitar and song, as well as famous guest artists from Spain, popular local flamenco fusion bands and dance performances, and a free library concert series.


“Flamenco is always spontaneous...connected to the music, the primal rhythm of the footwork, the colour of the costumes, all elements creating an emotional universe.”

-Joaquin Ruiz, Flamenco Dancer, Fall for Flamenco Festival 2008
