Info: Festival Latinos Internacional is proud to present its annual celebration, this year themed “Taste of Cultura” a Latino Makers Exposition, an event which will take place over the course four days.

Hispanic immigrant families have become important and respected members of the flourishing creative industry. Mexicans, Puerto Ricans Cubans, Chilean and the many others of Latino descent have all played a part in the growth of the arts, crafts and makers industry in the United States. While their stories may differ, the extraordinary work ethic of these Hispanic entrepreneurs is shown by their success. Moreover, while most of these makers first learned about the creative industry through their cultural eyes, they often expanded their knowledge with the introduction of the diverse melting pot of our country. Without the contributions of these Hispanic artists, craftsman, chefs, makers, business owners and other equally distinguished creative endeavors of Latino origin, the world might not be as bright and vivid as it is today. In an ongoing effort to support each other, several organizations have become collaborators to bring forth light and a heritage identity upon the local arts and cultural scene. It’s the individual effort of everybody working together towards a collective goal that causes real, effective change in the world. We welcome the entire community to come enjoy our art, music, performances, cuisine and spirits!!
