As summer comes to an end here in Buenos Aires, the weather gets cooler, everyone is back from vacation, students are back at school, and the city has returned to its hustling and bustling self. This also means the city activity calendar is full again with many cultural events and highly anticipated annual festivals. Here is a brief look at the upcoming noteworthy events in this 2014 fall season and mark your calendar!
Buenos Aires Market
This organic and healthy food market has been growing in popularity and size exponentially since it started a few years ago. From once a season at 2 different locations to almost once every month at a different neighborhood. Not only you can enjoy freshly made food and drinks there, you can also do your shopping on a wide-range of health food and organic products which are otherwise hard to find at normal supermarkets.
The next one is on Saturday March 22 and Sunday March 23, 2014 in the Caballito neighborhood.
Buenos Aires International Film Festival – BAFICI – April 2 – 13, 2014

The schedule will be jam-packed with 400 movies from all over the world, most of them are ticketed shows but there are free events for general public too, like the outdoor movie screenings at the Parque Centenario and Planetario.
