Casablanca Events proudly presents our annual event:

THE COLOMBIAN INDEPENDENCE DAY FESTIVAL

MELBOURNE 2017

Y era un viernes 20 de Julio del año de 1810, día de mercado en Santafé de Bogotá, cuando un criollo fue a pedir prestado un florero. Un acto, en apariencia efímero, desencadenó un enfrentamiento entre criollos y españoles, que sellaría definitivamente la independencia de Colombia en la gloriosa batalla del Puente de Boyacá el día 7 de Agosto de 1819.

Hoy mas de 200 años después, nuestras almas y comunidad aquí en el otro lado del charco se une para alzar juntos de nuevo ese grandioso Grito de independencia de Espana.

VIVA COLOMBIA !!!!!

Place: Fitzroy Town Hall

When: 22nd of July

Festival Time : 11:30am to 1:00am

We invite and welcome all nationalities to be part of this celebration and exploration of Colombian passions.

An event presented during the day and night to include a remarkable experience of music, food, market inspired stalls, dancers and top Exhibition of Melbourne Colombian artists.

Official Announcement:

Latin American communities throughout Victoria come together to celebrate in true Latin American passion, the country that is Colombia & to pay homage to a place that makes Latin America amazing.

Colombia declared independence from Spain in July 1810 and achieved it in 1819. Regional cultural traditions can be diverse; groups can be classified into six regions: amazonica, andina, caribe, insular, orinoquia and pacifica. Only during elections, sporting events, and beauty pageants do the regional cultures unite for a common goal or party ... or to celebrate the anniversary of independence from Spain!
