The International Street Arts Festival (or: Mueca Arts Festival), now in its third year, takes place in the central streets, squares and around the harbour of Puerto, with lots of performances lined up over the three days. Entry to most of the activities is free.
Every year the festival drew thousands of visitors to the town.
This event is a cultural showcase for Canarian innovation in comedy, theatre, dancing, music, photography, painting.
These include shows such as a vertical dance group, who perform on the sides of buildings; a theatre company who out their audiences in boats to tell them stories about sailors and fishermen; a story kitchen where tales are told to the accompaniment of the flavours and aromas they feature; and a competition for human statues.
