Wayúu Cultural Festival

The Festival of Wayúu Culture takes place every May in Uribia, a municipality that is considered “the indigenous capital of Colombia.” This festival, which includes dancing, the presentation of handicrafts, and the preparation of typical regional foods, serves as a cultural bond that unites the residents of Upper Guajira, both those on the Colombian side of the border and those on the Venezuelan side of the border (in the state of Zulia).
