Bay Area Events

The San Francisco Bay Area attracts millions of tourists every year and is known for its varied cuisine, panoramic views, scenic drives, music, museums, and especially for its diverse, cosmopolitan population. A steady stream of Cuban artists have been moving to the Bay for years and a small Cuban cultural community has developed. The following section lists some of the Bay Area’s classes, bands, dance companies and venues that feature Cuban-style music and dance.

PlazaCUBA is expanding this section. Feel free to email us details about other classes or events that you would like to see posted.
