Imagine Carnival with threads of religion woven in and you’ll have Quibdo’s Fiestas de San Pacho. Starting at the end of September and running until early October, this festival is a unique blend of religious expression, historical reference and social commentary. Though the festival still honours Saint Francis, the patron saint of Quibdo, with his likeness being paraded down the street, the festival also illustrates the long history of the area and its roots: you’ll hear African music and see traditional garb as the revellers dance through the streets. It's a feast of colour and flavour that you won't find elsewhere.

Hi! It's worth going for 2 days, yes and it's easy of find places to stay but the party is about to end. There are only 3 days left that are worth it.
