Chacala Festival of Art & Music

One evening in early 2012, a group of people spontaneously broke out into song, attracting an interested crowd with their music from Broadway Musicals. This inspired the growing community, hatching the idea that Chacala might be the perfect place to celebrate music & arts, & so the Puerto de Chacala Festival de Musica y Arte was born.
