9th to 15th of October

Colors, dances, music, fun and action – that is what our festivals are about! Every year in October we celebrate the beauty of nature with our week-long environmental festivals: Tropical Dry Forest Festival in Leon and the Forest Festival in Estelí. The week is filled with fun activities, competitions, outdoor circuits about plants and animals, guided excursions to nature reserves and as the grand finale an amazing parade of all schools in the regions. Participation in all the activities is completely free for everyone.

We need your support!

To organize and conduct the festivals each year we rely on support of everyone. Help us to organize, donate or sponsor our festivities! Our goal is to collect in total $2000 for the festival in León and $1500 for Estelí.
