Latin American Festival 2013
Downtown Long Beach
5th Annual Latin American Festival returns to Downtown Long Beach on Saturday, September 7, in a new location. Co-produced by the Downtown Long Beach Associates (DLBA) and Vice Mayor Robert Garcia, the event will take place on Historic Old Pine Avenue at 7th Street from 5pm – 10pm.
The evening’s festivities will include live performances from acclaimed bands La Santa Cecilia and Raul Pacheco Y Los Dragones de Cumbia. La Santa Cecilia is a Los Angeles based music group that has performed with music legends like Elvis Costello and is known for their modern hybrid of Latin rhythms and rock and roll. Raul Pacheco Y Los Dragones de Cumbia was formed by Ozomatli front man Raul Pacheco and is known for its lively and danceable Cumbia sound.
Numerous vendors selling hand-made clothing and original artwork, a beer and margarita bar provided by Agave’s, interactive opportunities, health & wellness information and authentic Latin Cuisine will also be featured at the event. Live music and dance performances will take place throughout the night on two stages and a children’s activity area will feature a variety of activities geared to younger guests. The Arts Council for Long Beach will provide piñata making and dance classes in the A Lot, located on the west side of Pine Avenue, just south of 7th Street.
