Festival Latino

The Festival Latino of the Berkshires celebrates Hispanic Heritage in its 26th anniversary, with Latin American folkloric dance and music performances, language and cultural activities, artisans and Latin food vendors, from tacos to chorizos, arepas, tamales, empanadas, arroz con pollo, beans, tostones and more.

Talented and highly accomplished Latin American folk dance companies present typical dances from different Latin American countries at the Saint James Place Theater and in the park. This is one of the festival’s central evente, where the creativity, wealth, and talent of the Latin culture is exposed.

Singers and DJs provide the best Latin music hits throughout the afternoon as a soundtrack to liven up the afternoon while attendees explore the various activities of the Festival. And artisans will offer handicrafts from different Latin American countries.

The festival takes place behind the Town Hall at Green Park and Saint James Place on Main Street in Great Barrington, free and open to all, and it is alcohol-free.

The Latino Festival of the Berkshires is a non-profit organization created in 1995 to promote and celebrate Hispanic heritage in Berkshire County, allowing community roots to grow and contributing to the strengthening of community in the Berkshires.

By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.

If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
