As an immigrant woman, mother, business owner, and photographer, I am always on the lookout for diversity, inclusion, and celebrating different cultures and ethnicities.
Fuerza Latina Festival in Vaughan was created and organized to empower Latin American culture, provide inclusivity for Spanish speaking people, connect families and individuals with like-minded people, promote the growth of businesses, and to keep cultures of Latin America alive. Passing down on traditions such as traditional meals, dances, clothing items. and so on is at the heart of the organization.
Many vendors came out on July 16, 2022 to be a part of this beautiful, fun filled event. Many performers took the stage to sign, dance, and showcase their talents. Small businesses like Tesoros of Ecuador, Cubed Style, Orange Theory and VaniTEA Blends.
This festival is the perfect place for families with children to come and enjoy yummy snacks and drinks, games, and music.
To celebrate Latin American cultures, Fuerza Latina Festival showcases dancers and musicians in their original, ethnic customs. Some of the performers can be seen in the gallery below.
Fuerza Latina Festival welcomes everyone who wants to come and experiences a bite of the Latin American cultures, food, and little treasures. If you came out to Vaughan this year, I hope you had a fantastic time. And if you haven't had the chance to come and visit this year, I hope to see you there next year!
