About Festival Latino

Festival Latino began as a five-hour pilot project by the City of Columbus in 1996, and after an overwhelming response, expanded to a two-day event in 1997. The event offers lively music, dancing in the streets, cultural and arts workshops for children and adults, Latin-American cuisine, and community information tents. Over the years, Festival Latino has continued to flourish and grow in the number of performing artists, workshops, vendors, participating community groups, and audience.Festival Latino's mission is to provide the community with an opportunity to experience traditional and contemporary Latin American culture. The festival provides performing and visual arts, educational workshops, and authentic cuisine.Festival Latino is the largest Hispanic Latino event in the Midwest and attracts a multicultural audience from throughout Ohio and the surrounding states.Photo credits detailed on our website.
