Now in its 17th year, Festival Latino returns to downtown Columbus’ Genoa Park on Saturday, August 11, and Sunday, August 12. Produced by CAPA and presented by HONDA, the free, two-day event will offer children’s activities, food, dance, and music from the heart of Latin America, including performances from Saturday night headliner Obie Bermudez and Sunday night headliner Miriam Cruz. Many local Columbus musicians and bands will be performing this year including Victor Zancudo and Deja Vu Latin Fusion with Enrique Infante.
Festival Latino’s mission is to provide the community with an opportunity to experience traditional and contemporary Latin American culture through the presentation of the performing and visual arts, educational workshops and authentic cuisine. Festival Latino is the largest Hispanic/Latino event in Ohio, and attracts a multicultural audience from throughout Ohio and the surrounding states.
