The following description was submitted by the event organizer.
Join Edúcate Ya to celebrate Argentina’s favorite drink. Mate holds great cultural, social, and economic importance to Latin America’s largest Spanish-speaking country. Attendees at Edúcate Ya’s Día del Mate festival will hear from the resident Argentinian about the health benefits and social significance of this bitter drink, and thanks to sponsor Guayakí, there will be plenty of mate to go around, as well as some of the sweeter treats that Argentina has to offer. Following the mate demonstration will be a guest speaker to dive deeper into Argentina's rich and diverse culture.
The presentations will be bilingual, and all nationalities are welcome to celebrate. Drinking mate is a social custom, so attendees are encouraged to socialize with their neighbors over a warm cup after the presentations.
Be sure to secure your spot now. Space is limited.
