About the Festival Latino de Lexington

– The Festival is the largest Latino Heritage event in Kentucky;

– In fact, it’s the largest such event in the surrounding states except for the Festival Latino of Columbus, OH;

– Traditionally we featured many regional vendors offering Latino food, crafts, and on many occasions we have live performing by sculptors, painters, and other plastic arts artists;

– We have featured international performers such as the Los Tigres del Norte band from Mexico, Xtreme from Dominican Republic via New York, Calle 8 Band from Costa Rica, Grupo Fuego from Puerto Rico via Cleveland, OH, Group of Zamba from Brasil.

– We promote the event regionally including newspapers in the Bluegrass Area (Herald Leader, La Voz of Kentucky) and in the Louisville area (Al Dia en America), and Spanish and English radio stations;

– For more than 10 years we count with the sponsorship from companies such as Toyota, Lexmark International, PNC Bank, BB&T Bank, 5/3 Bank, Supermercados Aguascalientes.

– The Festival Latino of Lexington has become an excellent example of collaboration between the local government (via the Department of Parks and Recreation), the private sector, and our community.espacio-30x30
