On the 23rd of April every year, the Institute celebrated the Fiesta de la Lengua Española (or Cervantes Day), in commemoration of the great Spanish author. At the Casa Hispánica or on campus, the Fiesta was usually celebrated with evening programs that included choirs of folk songs, traditional dances, poetry recitations, plays, musical performances, among other presentations.
