El Tió 2018

  • Roger Smith Hotel 501 Lexington Avenue New York USA (map)

The Tió has arrived and we are ready to celebrate this Catalan Christmas tradition with all of you. Join us on Sunday, December 16th, 2018, 2pm-5pm @ the Roger Smith Hotel, for a musical Caga Tió event, with kids’ activities and wonderful piano music.

At the end of the Caga Tió event, all Catalan Institute of America members are invited to vote to elect the new CIOFA board for the 2019-2020 period.


Tickets for members are $20 per kid and for non-members, $25 per kid. All tickets include everything needed for building a Gingerbread House and one present for the Tió. This event is FREE for everyone else. Please, notice that this year the event is in the afternoon and there will be no food. Drinks will be available at the bar at an extra cost.

* Important: reservations for Tió gifts can only be made online and until Sunday December 9th. After this deadline we cannot guarantee a gift for your child. *
