San Pedro Fair Relocates To Nearby Curridabat

December 14, 2007

The annual San Pedro open-air art fair that was about to be canceled for the first time in 12 years is back on again in a new spot.

Planners of the event this week received a green light from the nearby Municipality of Curridabat, east of San José, to hold the event at Plaza José María Zeledón.

Organizers had called off the event late last month after the Municipality of Montes de Oca denied them the permits necessary to have the festival at San Pedro’s Plaza Roosevelt, where it had been held for the past 11 years. It was originally scheduled to take place there from Nov. 28-Dec.2.

Curridabat Mayor Edgar Mora called the festival’s organizers upon hearing the news and offered to host the event on his turf, said festival planner Mario Martín.

More than 400 artists are preparing their stands at the plaza. The festival begins Friday and runs through Tuesday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.
