Latin American art in Vancouver takes its place proudly among the wide spectrum of cultural diversity our city has to offer. For many years, Latino artists have been fusing the influences rooted in the traditions they brought to the Pacific Northwest with those they have discovered here.

Travelling is an enriching experience because it offers the opportunity to meet new people, learn about different traditions and enjoy new cuisines. Planning the trip is part of the fun because it combines ideas, creativity, budget and salivating anticipation of the foods we will eat! We can choose to travel abroad or in our own country. We can go by plane, train, car, bus, or a cruise ship. We can travel right at home through cuisines too.

Carnaval del Sol celebrates family. We believe family life should be grounded and well rounded. History and culture give us roots, while knowledge of health and wellness, financial stability, and environmental awareness will help us build strong futures. Fun and relaxation is just as important too!

Kids (and Moms) Plaza is where three to ten year olds can play and learn new and different activities in their own space. A perfect destination for them to have a great time, learn, and make new friends. Featuring KidZone with a robust selection of 90’s toys and games including retro video games and custom colouring books, every kid will easily be entertained while Mom is pampered inside her own Plaza!

Latin American cuisine is the result of a mixture of national preferences dating back to pre-Columbian era, and the styles brought by the conquerors, settlers and immigrants. Natural products from each region are blended with new ones adopted from very remote places and every home has their own version of dishes that are beautiful explosions of flavours and colours. Savour your way through our cultures and enjoy the vibrant dishes of Latin Americans.

Latin American Week Events

We received the proclamation for the “Latin American Week” from the Province of B.C. and work
along with the City of Vancouver to promote a multicultural scene.

Carnaval del Sol

“These two special festive weeks in July will be a wonderful, exciting, and inspirational opportunity to showcase and appreciate the vibrant Latin American spirit, through music, dance, film, sports, and so much more, including the Gala Awards event and ending the schedule with a fabulous Carnaval del Sol.”

  • It is important that we have multicultural community events that allow our citizens to feel connected to their heritage and allow everyone to experience a bit of culture they may not be familiar with. As trade expands between North and South America, a connection between the people of Canada and Latin America are natural and necessary
