Plaza Latina Festival is BACK and better than ever! Come join us for FREE (GRATIS) at Nursery Row Park, East Street Market to experience an authentic piece of Latin America along with its colourful fiesta vibes!
Come join us August 6th to get down like a true Latino! The festival will start at 11am and finish around 9:30pm, with 10,000 people expected to attend so you do NOT want to miss it.
Everyone from every different culture, ethnicity and age is welcome, with events ranging from a fair for under 5s to special performances from Gabriel Romero and Fruko y sus Tesosl as well as other local artists. So prepare yourself to be swayed by infectious latin rhythms such as cumbia, vallenato all day long. It is also a good way to gain some insight into Latin culture and art.Plaza Latina is a festival run by Carnaval del Pueblo, an association that has been promoting South American culture in London since 1996, particularly in Elephant & Castle and Seven Sisters.
Now for the food: expect the Latin culture to be reflected in traditional dishes such as Venezuelan arepas, Argentinian grilled meats, pupusas from El Salvador, Peruvian ceviche and more!
