Parrandas of Remedios obtained the 2019 Cuban Excellences Award

The Parrandas of Remedios received the 2019 Cuban Excellences Award at a ceremony that took place at the Avellaneda Room of the National Theater of Havana.

This traditional celebration deserved such a recognition in the category of Touristic Excellences, on its contribution to keep alive the best cultural traditions of Cuba and on being considered one of the three main national festivals, according to Erik Gonzalez Bello, director of the Museum of the Parrandas.

For Juan Carlos Hernandez, principal specialist of the Museum of the Parrandas, the award represents a great incentive to celebrate this 2020, the Bicentennial of the oldest festival in the country, the Living Memory Award and the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity , in addition to the 505th anniversary of San Juan de los Remedios.

The Cuban Excellences Awards were created in 2005 by the Group of the same name, with the aim at promoting the aesthetic taste in the different fields related to tourism and culture.
