About the Festival

The 14th Annual Festival Latino is a community collaboration of non-profit organizations, local government and business. This event brings children and families together to have fun and helps build a stronger and more inclusive community. It provides an opportunity for community members to socialize, break down barriers, and strengthen understanding of one another.

We invite your organization to participate in the Community Resources Fair held in conjunction with this event.
As a community organization, the resource fair can provide you with a unique opportunity to share information about your services with Latinos and others living in Linn and Benton counties.

A Fiesta Family Fun Run is being planned in the morning – please consider participating.
