Greater Raleigh is proud to be a melting pot of many different cultures and ethnicities, and even more proud to host dozens of cultural festivals throughout each year in support of this diversity. No culture seems to be left uncelebrated within Wake County’s lines. On September 18th, La Fiesta del Pueblo will showcase the beautiful cultures of Latin America and the Caribbean, adding even more local flavor to the mix.

La Fiesta del Pueblo celebrates family, culture and the community through showcases of popular music and artists, art exhibits, traditional dance performances, folk musicians, and delicious cuisine. Come prepared to bite into mouthwatering papusas, paletas, churros, empanadas, and much more. Crafts by local artists will be on display for your enjoyment or purchase.

This is a very family-friendly event, so bring along the kids and let them explore in the children’s area. Here, they’ll find crafts, balloons, face-painting, inflatable rides, clowns and puppets to entertain and engage them in this wonderful cultural celebration. Bring the whole family and all of your friends without having to reach for your wallet; this festival has free admission.

Find La Fiesta in Moore Square Park between noon and 8 p.m. to celebrate the Latino community and learn more about just one of the many cultures that call Raleigh home.
