Performing-arts events take place at the Teatro Municipal de Ancud (Blanco Encalada 660), on the east side of the Plaza de Armas, and the Casa de la Cultura (Libertad 663, tel. 065/628164), alongside the museum.
For drinks, try the Retro Pub (Maipú 615).
Late January’s Semana Ancuditana (Ancud Week) celebrates the city’s founding, the island’s folkloric music and dance, and traditional food. Throughout December and January, though, there are similar events in nearby communities.
