A little history
Buenos Aires is a coastal city, founded on the banks of the Río de la Plata. In the 19th century, citizens used to enjoy the riverside as there were spas to bathe and refresh.
Years passed and Buenos Aires began to turn its back on the river. Pollution increased and people’s interest dropped. Fortunately, a few years ago, works began to be carried out so that the river can once again be the protagonist and so that citizens can enjoy the great Río de la Plata.
Faced with the COVID-19 situation, we ask you to take into account the protocols and stay informed. The use of masks is mandatory, as well as social distancing. Let’s take care of each other!
Other places to enjoy the river, which we already talked about are:
Buenos Aires Jazz Festival, it is a Festival that offers a variety of concerts with paid admission, but also has many activities and concerts with free admission. There are concerts of national and international artists too!
In turn, there are several clinics and workshops that are offered at different times depending on the duration of the festival, which can be a week or a couple of days.
You can also take dance classes, proposals to enjoy outdoors and a lot of information about this popular musical style.
For some of the proposals and clinics, it is usually necessary to book online.
The main venues for free concerts are usually La Usina del Arte and the Amphitheater of Parque Centenario. There may also be activities in different Cultural Spaces.
Given the situation of COVID-19, it is not yet resolved whether the festival will take place or not, since it is usually organized for the month of November. Given the worldwide known situation, we do not know if in November 2021 we will finally be able to enjoy this beautiful event.
We leave you a video of one of the groups of artists that were part of the Buenos Aires Jazz Festival, so that you can enjoy this beautiful musical style in the meantime:

The purpose of its creation was to spread quality gastronomic culture and live music.
