CARNAVAL DEL SOL


 

JULY 7 & 8, 2018

CONCORD PACIFIC

Carnaval de Sol is the biggest Latin festival in the Pacific Northwest. It will be 2 days of live music, art, dance, sports, and poetry in celebration of Latin American Culture. For 2017, Carnaval del Sol will bring together more than 350 artists from different Latin American countries.

The biggest Latin festival in the Pacific Northwest, Carnaval del Sol, recreates the atmosphere of a vibrant city plaza in Latin America. The arts showcased during this event include live musical bands (300 artist), Native Canadian and Latin American visual art, traditional folk dances from different countries, arts and crafts displays, dancing and culinary lessons (1 international chef, 10 local chefs) and a Latin American inspired fashion show.

Carnaval del Sol will be presented for the enjoyment of the Latinos and the local community. These activities are developed to engage and connect the various communities in British Columbia. Carnaval del Sol is the finale to the 10 day long Latinamerican Week Festival. The shared objective of Carnaval del Sol and Latinamerican Week is to act as a much-needed bridge between Vancouver’s rapidly growing Latin American communities and other communities. Arts and culture are universal languages that unite people and allow cities to grow and thrive.
