Colombia Moda

This fair, which takes place during the last days of July, brings together the highlights of design and fashion. During its realization the parades are made with the designs that will mark the fashion in the second half of the year.

Feria de las Flores

This traditional event of the city is a tribute to the floriculture in Antioquia and its growers, which are known as "Los Silleteros."
