The city is part of the "Water-Circuit", a cluster of towns which are very famous for natural fountains and waterwells. The main event here is the Winter Festival, when some stages are set over the main plaza and shows are scheduled for the whole month of July. All kinds of bands are invited to the city, from sertanejo (a Brazilian form of country music) to heavy metal. Ballet and plays are often part of it. Although the event is more directed to the city inhabitants, it's a touristic event and July might be the best time to visit Amparo.
