The Theater Offensive presents Boston’s third annual celebration of a Puerto Rican tradition, the Saint Sebastian Festival 2019.
The Theater Offensive's OUT’hood Series will present Boston’s third annual Saint Sebastian Festival 2019 (Festival de San Sebastian 2019). Following the past two year’s major success, this year’s celebration will continue bringing the traditions of Puerto Rican culture and celebrations to Boston. The festival will feature Puerto Rican food, live folklore and salsa music, dancing, theater performances, "cabezudos" (giant dancing head puppets), and a live Saint Sebastian body painting installation. All are welcome to celebrate this special day and learn about Puerto Rican cultural heritage traditions while honoring Saint Sebastian, one of the great icons of modern queer culture. And, of course, we'll have some fabulous performances you won't want to miss! Funded in part by the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
Free and open to all. Suggested donation $10 online or at the door. Please register at https://stsebastian2019.eventbrite.com
