Who We Are

Our Mission & Vision

The Festival promotes equality, social inclusion and the sharing of culture, traditions, and customs, contributing to building a community that respects and celebrates multiculturalism.

Our mission is to infuse the Latin Culture through the art of Gastronomy while engaging and educating non-Latin communities about our Culture. At the same time, we support local businesses and restaurants right in the heart of the Latin Epicenter of Massachusetts.

In 2021, we celebrated the event in Brooklyn, NY, with over 3000 attendees. This year, we have chosen the great Lawrence, MA, also known as the “Immigrant City.” With an 80% Hispanic / Latin population and 70% of local businesses owned and operated by the Latino Community, it is an epicenter of the Latin Culture located in MA, close to Boston and the New Hampshire border.

In 2022, We are celebrating the food and cultures of the Ibero-American Countries. Highlighting the similarities and differences across the Latin countries that stand together as a united community.
