Hamilton Latino Festival
The Latin American community is growing in the last years as part of our community. It is a challenge to promote the images and traditions of Colombians and Latin American in Canada, as well as supporting and promoting Latin American talent. We want to create and establish a festival in Hamilton that becomes one of our city’s signature cultural events and a legacy of the TO2015 Pan American games, providing the Hamiltonians and visitors a venue in which the Latin/Hispanic culture gathers to joyously celebrate its heritage and also enable our organization to promote our mission through increased community awareness.
