“Hispanic Origins”, a Journey through Spanish Cultures!

On Sunday 8 October 2017 we will be celebrating once again the event “Hispanic Origins” in The Hague. After the successful edition 2016, Hispanic Origins 2017 will take place on the 8th of October at the Zuider Strand Theatre.

Like the previous years, visitors will be able to enjoy concerts, dance performances, exhibitions and the gastronomic delights of many Hispanic countries. Since the moment Columbus discovered America on the 12th of October 1492, the Spanish in a smaller measure the Portuguese and French, have influenced the development of countries and cultures on the continent.

Nowadays, even sharing a common history and language, and some cultural similarities all these different countries have their own culture, traditions and customs although they still share their common origin.

To celebrate this cultural diversity resulting on the mix of Spanish and native culture in the case of the Americas, Hispanic Origins is organized each year around the Anniversary of the arrival of Christopher Columbus to America, 12th of October. On this date many countries around the world celebrate their Spanish heritage.
The event is for all culture lovers and particularly to people interested in the traditions and peculiarities of Hispanic countries.

Tickets prices are 27.50 € until August 15, after August 16 the Price per person will be 32.50 €. Last year nearly all the tickets were sold before the event even took place. To allow more people to join the event in 2017, a bigger venue has been chosen.’ Said Cristina Galbe, from Galbe Events & Catering, organiser of the event.

The event will take place from 16:00 until 20:00 and visitors are offered a child’s program in the afternoon, followed by a food & culture show after which the evening show takes place. The food & culture show consists of a variety of shows, culinary presentations and expositions.

The embassies of all the different participating countries have supported in organizing the program, both by offering the culinary presentations and providing entertainment for the visitors. During the evening show from 18:00 to 20:00, a variety of performances of song and dance can be enjoyed.
