Best things to do this weekend in Santiago (Aug 19 - 21)

We're officially counting down to Fiestas Patrias! To help you pass the time, why not catch Richie Ramone of the Ramones, or Dios Salve A La Reina, an up-and-coming Queen tribute band. If you're looking for a more family-oriented vibe, check out the Cumbre Joven at Expo Mapocho or a special Saturday Ciclorecreovía on Andres Bello. Or, if you're looking for something spiritual, check out the Expo Sabiduría Ancestral at Metro Santa Lucia or the Encuentro Amoroso en Luna Llena, a growing celebration of the full moon.

Remember every week we'll post our picks for the weekend and please check this space often as we may update it with changes and/or new events that pop up. Enjoy!
