Best things to do this weekend in Santiago (Sep 25 - 27)

If you think the city's going to take a weekend off after last week's fonda-fest, you're dead wrong. There are a ton of awesome events going on this weekend and we've picked out our favorites. The contemporary art fair Ch.ACO has kicked off, there's a documentary film festival running through Sunday, an international literary fair, poetry nights, artistic interventions, underground parties, a vegan picnic, Mil Guitaras para Victor Jara, neighborhood carnivals, even a religious procession!

Remember every Friday 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!

  • English on Friday: Are you a Chilean trying to learn English? Or are you a non-Spanish speaker trying to grasp the complexity of Chilean modismos? If you fall into either of these categories, then the weekly gatherings at "Donde Mismo" are just for you. With beers and a great atmosphere, this is an ideal setting for mingling, making new friends, and/or improving your fledgling language skills. The gathering begins at 8 p.m.
