Latin Festival 2017
May 6, 2017 - May 6, 2018Free
Latin Festival is designed as a free community celebration with event proceeds to Chattanooga State Foundation’s Latino Scholarship Fund and the Chattanooga State’s Adult Basic Education and English as a Second Language Programs offered in Highland Park since 2001.
Latin Festival 2017 has the spirit of a Caribbean carnival with fun for all ages and backgrounds. The Festival features traditional folkloric dance and musical performances by local artists and regional performers, a parade of nations, authentic food court, pavilion of faith, Latino-American soccer tournament, visual artists’ showcase, a Hispanic Heritage Fashion Show and plenty of family fun!
Once again a unique part of Latin Festival is our Passport to Latin-American Challenge which is a fun cultural learning experience available for up to 500 participants. It will “challenge” people to connect with 16 educational booths and activities to learn about different Latin countries represented in Chattanooga. Goodie Bags prizes will be available for participants completing the challenge.
