El Yunque festival slated for Saturday in Río Grande

At Saturday’s “Vista a El Yunque Fest” in the Palmer neighborhood of Río Grande, 20 entrepreneurs will exhibit their products, and live music and cultural entertainment for the entire family will be provided.


“Vista a El Yunque Fest,” an event that promotes local consumption and environmental awareness, will take place Saturday in the Palmer neighborhood of Río Grande, in the heart of the El Yunque National Forest region.

Raquel Skerret Escalera, the executive director of the nonprofit organization Vitrina Solidaria, which sponsors the event, said the summer festival in which 20 entrepreneurs will exhibit their products will also feature live music and cultural entertainment for the whole family.

“This festival is a great opportunity to exhibit and sell the services or products of entrepreneurs in a place where many visitors who come to the forest are received daily,” Skerret Escalera said. “Likewise, it is an opportunity to continue promoting our values of sustainable development and a solidarity economy.”

Besides the aforementioned live music, the Vista a El Yunque Fest will also feature a health fair, artisans, food vendors, recreational activities and an unparalleled family atmosphere, organizers said. Environmental organizations allied with Vitrina Solidaria will be informing the public about their initiatives on issues of conservation of natural resources in the eastern region of Puerto Rico.

The event will be held at the Caribbean Trading Company from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m.

Skerret Escalera added that entrepreneurs participating in the festival will also have advertising on social networks and media, collective tent space and free parking.
