Mar 4: A Carnaval celebration takes place, with the dancers from Fogo Na Roupa energizing the Wilsey Court and other Carnaval-themed events for the whole family.
Mar 18: Olmecs Singing in the Flowers. Live music by Cascada de Flores will be performed in Wilsey Court, while a special presentation of flor y canto, a centuries-old literary tradition, takes place in the Koret Auditorium.
