Additional Information

Description

Kick off Hispanic Heritage Month at the inaugural Latinidad Festival 2022 in Annette Strauss Square, presented by ATTPAC and Anita N. Martinez Ballet Folklorico. Here you'll celebrate the diversity of Latin America through food, music, dance, local vendors, and art.

This Latinidad Festival is a free family-friendly event that brings the color and diversity of Latin America while also supporting and spotlighting local businesses, organizations, and artists.

Support Latinx-owned businesses by shopping in the Latinidad Mercado, a pop-up market curated by Hecho Con Amor. Anita Sanchez founded Hecho Con Amor in 2018 as a means to highlight and prioritize BIPOC-owned small businesses and creatives in the community through accessible and affordable pop-up markets and community engagements.

Explore the authentic cuisine of Latin America from local food vendors plus signature cocktails, like the “Anita Margarita,” beer and wine.

Connect with local organizations that provide important services and raise awareness for the Latinx community. Visit the Casita de Cultura area for cultural arts and craft activities for the entire family. All workshops are led by local Latinx artists.

Enjoy live entertainment with music from Mariachi Águilas de América and Asociación Puertorriqueña de DFW. Experience the traditional dances of Latin America with presentations from Mitotiliztli Yaoyollohtli, Alma Salvaje and Anita N. Martínez Ballet Folklorico. Get ready to end the night dancing to Dallas’ favorite Cumbia band Puro Sabor Cumbia.
