Cultural activities are always our favorite, especially if they include all family members. The Frida Kahlo Museum has been one of the main attractions in Riviera Maya for a while now. Their weekly schedule highlights family-friendly activities and inexpensive events. Its location makes it easy to find and is surrounded by the most popular restaurants, bars, and shops. In the following months, they promise to have really interesting events organized by Cineclub, which is another amazing Cultural organization in Playa del Carmen. But the Open Microphone activity held next week keeps us interested since it is related to our favorite festivity: Dia de Los Muertos.
Frida Kahlo Museum in Playa del Carmen was first to open on July 6th, 2017, commemorating the 110th Anniversary of Frida Kahlo and her legacy. This museum features cool audiovisuals and interactive paintings, making it a must-see experience in Riviera Maya. Their regular schedule is from Monday to Sunday, and from 9:00 am to 11:00 pm. Through 9 different rooms, you can discover Frida Kahlo’s amazing talent. Additionally, when visiting this fantastic museum, you can also have breakfast, lunch, or dinner on-site, which will take your experience to a different level. Please contact us to secure your visit and transportation in advance.
Frida Kahlo Museum will have an Open mic event for you to tell your funniest or scariest story. All attendees are more than welcome to wear costumes whether they present their story or not. The organizers also encourage them to bring a musical instrument to make their presentation more dramatic or fun. All collected funds of this event will go towards the creation of a new library for the Mayan community San Silverio. The event is limited to only 15 story presentations of no longer than 6 minutes. You can also participate with a 3-minute song, poem, rap, or “calaverita” (Dia de Los Muertos rhyme). Registration is needed in advance. The entrance for visitors, in general, would be 50 pesos per person. A donation is required for people doing the presentations, additionally to the entrance fee. This is an amazing opportunity to participate in a cultural event, celebrating the traditional Dia de los Muertos.
The Open Mic event at Frida Kahlo Museum will be celebrated on Wednesday, October 30th, 2019. There is a previous register required, and the presentations will start at 6:00 pm.
There will be several other events to celebrate the Dia de los Muertos, and the Open Microphone at Frida Kahlo Museum is only one of them. We highly recommend you to join in and stay for the rest of the evening at one of our local Contest parties around 5th Avenue in Playa del Carmen. There will be lots of costume contests taking place!
