Discovery Day Homecoming Festival
There is easy site access for persons with mobility impairments and those in wheelchairs, but it might be difficult to access the beach because of the sandy terrain.
Ages Festival is Appropriate For
This festival encourages San Salvadorians worldwide to come home and celebrate Discovery Day, which commemorates the first landfall of the great navigator Christopher Columbus, on October 12, 1492. He renamed the Island of Guanahani to San Salvador meaning "Holy Saviour."
The event features cultural performances, gospel concerts, live entertainment by local and visiting artists, and culminates in a regatta with Bahamian sailing sloops.
Pet Friendly Notes
This event is not suitable for pets, because of the crowd and noise.
