Around 125 Costa Rican craftsmen will participate in the International Handcrafts Fair
February 17, 2012

FINARTE has been held for more than 5 years and was declared of cultural interest by the township and the Government of Costa Rica


How this cultural initiative was born:

In 2002, with the support of the Ministry of Culture, the Central American House of Culture and the Nicaraguan Institute, at the Parque España, craftsmen from Costa Rica, El Salvador, Nicaragua and Guatemala showed their incredible pieces. They received an average support by the visitors, being this time their first exhibit.

They struggled and for the second time they chose the Old Customs House as their scenery. In other time they also used the Parque Morazan, but then the fair Transitarte started to compete with them. For the fifth year they decided to take a great risk and move the fair from San Jose to Santa Ana.

By: Melissa Solis C.

If you enjoy handcrafts, the International Handcrafts Fair (FINARTE) is your chance to appreciate more than 150 stands with incredible pieces made by local and international craftsmen; among them 125 are Costa Rican.

The 10th edition of FINARTE is taking place from February 15th to the 26th in front of the church of the canton of Santa Ana.

The Hotel Parque del Lago invites you to spend the most memorable nights while you enjoy this fair, with a perfect location and the best services.

FINARTE has been held for more than 5 years and was declared of cultural interest by the township and the Government of Costa Rica.

This activity has the support of the Ministry of Culture, the Central American House of Culture and the Nicaraguan Institute.
