This year, International Women's Day will be celebrated at the headquarters of UTQ (Casa Del Pueblo, 11 Calle 0-05, Zona 2). It will start with a traditional Guatemalan lunch, followed by live local music and a sharing of cultures and ideas on this internationally celebrated day. There will also be a poster display and a video that you can view at your leisure.
The cost is Q20 prior to the event or Q25 at the door on the day. Entry will include lunch and transport from the Parque Central (the bus will collect people at 1:30pm from the southern end of the Parque opposite the Cultural Museum).
