Hispanic American Musicians and Artists Cultural Association (HAMACA) proudly presents their 17th annual festival, Carnaval Latino 2016, will be held on October 15, 2016.
The celebration of Latin music, food, art and culture. Musical artists from several Latin American countries reflect the rich cultural diversity of Carnaval Latino and offer attendees a musical tour without ever leaving the city. Several popular local bands also perform during the fest. This year, the entire Latino celebration will be presented at the New Orleans Sugar Mill. Spain reconquers the French Quarter!
Besides an outstanding musical line-up, on Saturday at 6 pm, this year’s festival will feature the Fourth Annual “Desfile de las Américas”. The Hispanic community and its neighbors will inject an International flavor to the New Orleans tradition of float parades. Each float will provide its own music, costumes and throws celebrating its national roots. Almost twenty floats, representing countries from the Americas, and an equal number of folkloric and marching groups will delight bystanders on this special evening. You cannot miss this opportunity to celebrate Louisiana’s Hispanic Heritage and to be “en ese número”.
The Sugar Mill Concert, after “Parade of The Americas” arrives to the venue, will start at 8:00 pm.. A variety of Latino food vendors and artisans will also be on hand to offer a broad range of one-of-a-kind handcrafted items for sale. Children are also welcome during this family-friendly celebration. Buy your VIP Concert tickets online.
