The Organizing Committee of the Expo announced that 15 countries that use Spanish as an official language including Spain, Argentina and Columbia would hold a series of cultural events inside the Expo marking the“Spanish Language Day”on Saturday, June 23rd.
The “Spanish Language Day”has been celebrated on the first Saturday at the beginning of each Summer since 2009 by countries in the Spanish-speaking region, with the aim of promoting Spanish culture around the world. In this year, Spain, Argentina, Columbia, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Equatorial Guinea, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Dominican Republic and Uruguay hold the festival.
Visitors will be invited to Spanish language classes twice on the day, from 11am to 2pm and from 3pm to 5pm in each of the 15 countries’ pavilions, along with Latin dance classes featuring Flamingo and Tango in the Spain and Argentina Pavilions.
A Spanish song contest will add to the festivity in front of Spain Pavilion starting at 2pm.
Participants in the events will also be entertained by grand prize drawing events with give-aways suc as dinner coupons for two at restaurants of Spain and Peru Pavilions.
Inigo Alvarez Miranda, the Spanish PR director, said that “as evidenced by the worldwide popularity of the Spanish novel ‘Donkihote’, there exists no boundary in literature and language,” and that “we hope that Spanish Language Day will be celebrated not just by Spanish-speaking countries but also by all participating nations and visitors to the Expo, making it a truly global festival.”
