Legislative Assembly of the State of Pernambuco


A commission of Education and Culture announced, this Wednesday (3), that it will promote a public hearing to debate the holding of the Garanhuns Winter Festival (FIG). Last Tuesday, the City Hall of the municipality, in Agreste Meridional, announced attractions at the Mestre Dominguinhos hub, the main stage of the event.

The participation of the State Government, through Foundation of the Historical and Artistic Heritage of Pernambuco (Fundarpe), has not yet been confirmed. This impasse led deputy João Paulo (PT) requesting the hearing.

“We do not want to interfere in the decision of the city hall or the state management, but we need to listen to both to know what the FIG will be like without a presence as important as that of the State”, said the parliamentarian.

Deputy Izaías Régis (PSDB), who was mayor of Garanhuns from 2013 to 2020, considers that the City Hall is unable to hold the Festival without support from the Government.

“The current management only cares about the main stage, but the event has 25 cultural hubs. The FIG was created by the Government in 1991, to develop local tourism. It was never carried out solely by the City Hall. The privatization of the Festival is taking place”, he pointed out.

The 32nd edition of the FIG is scheduled to take place between July 11th and 28th. The date of the public hearing has not yet been set.
