Fiesta Latina

Latina, Fiesta

The Fiesta Latina takes place on one Saturday every October in Asheville, N.C. A celebration of Latino culture and community, it features Latino music, dance, food, and arts and crafts. It also provides opportunities for local businesses, organizations, and public-health agencies to reach the local Latino community with informational displays and services.
The festival began in 1999, when an Asheville museum sponsored a textile exhibition by Latin-American artists. Officials at the Asheville Latin Americans for Advancement Society decided to use the exhibit as a launch pad for a broader event to reflect many aspects of Latino culture. The event is now affiliated with the Young Men's Institute Cultural Center, a long-standing African-American socio-cultural institution in Asheville.
