Feria de Manizales

Members of the Press met this morning at Teatro Fundadores for the kick-off of the 64th Feria de Manizales, 2020. The presentation was short, sweet and it gave us the necessary information that the public needs to know!


With no further ado – here are the top tips and recommendations by the alcaldes (mayors) office for the Feria Mas Grande 2020.

Feria de Manizales 2020 Important Information

Feria de Manizales 2020

Saturday the Avenida Santander (Carrera 23) will be closed all day in anticipation of the Cabalgata – or horse parade. The mayor and his team ask that anyone who has a car, to please keep it parked and use public transportation.

The Mayors Office and National Police are evaluating the possibility of keeping segments of the city streets blocked based on pedestrian traffic, with the possibility of some streets remaining closed for the duration of the fair for a lower carbon footprint and better facility for foot traffic.

All outside visitors are being carefully checked and monitored by national police at the Peajes, or Toll Gates and all entrances into Manizales. The National Police will be here and vigilant. Of course, the best vigilance is the participation of our citizenry to encourage safe and responsible behavior.

A special emphasis is being placed on sustainability in this 64th version of the Feria Mas Grande. An easy to download or distribute via WhatsApp VERSION of the Feria de Manizales 2020 Event Program (Spanish Only), is available on the official website https://feriademanizales.gov.co

What are the top recommendations for Feria de Manizales 2020?

“All events are recommended – but especially that they experience the flavor of the Coffee Culture Landscape (Paisaje Cultural Cafetero). Visit the Temporada Taurina (Bullfights), at least one of the International Coffee Beauty Queen pageant events, learn about the art of our Caldense and Colombian creatives, and definitely visit the Artisan Fair at ExpoFerias. Finally, I would recommend that they drink a good Colombian coffee. This is from our Corazon Cafetero – coffee heart, that you come and enjoy a marvelous flavor.”

Dr. Juan Jose Silva, Director Institute of Culture and Tourism of Manizales
