A celebration of extraordinary Latin music and the Hispanic heritage and culture, presented by the non-profit Hispanic American Musicians and Artists Cultural Association (H.A.M.A.C.A.).
This unique weekend festival featuring international headline entertainment will be held on the New Orleans riverfront September 14-16, 2012
Carnaval Latino 2011 will include: Top headline entertainment; Music and folkloric dances from Spain, Portugal and the Americas; An extensive array of Hispanic and creole food and drinks; Visual arts and interactive entertainment and activities for people of all ages.
This Year, an amusement park has been added, offering thrilling rides and games for children of all ages.
As New Orleans continues to rebuild and clean itself of oil, the city recognized as the northernmost part of Latin America is recuperating at a rapid pace thanks in large part to the hard work of Hispanics who have moved here from around the country. Our beloved city wants to bring together its rich array of nationalities through this festival. Many of the region's Hispanic organizations are joining together to make this dream happen.
