The Afro Latin Festival YEG
Add to Calendar
We bring y'all back for a much anticipated and demanded 2nd edition: The Afro Latin Festival YEG. We're bringing you the sights & sounds of diverse representations of Latin, African, and Caribbean cultures all in one place! You won't be able to stop yourself from grooving to the riddims of live local & international talents that takes you from the Latin horns that are taking over the mainstream, to the Afrobeats tunes that provide the backdrop to so many viral dances and to bumpin’ tropical melodies that seem new and familiar at the same time.
The Afro Latin Festival YEG is a celebration of the uniqueness of and inter-connectivity between African, Caribbean and Latinx cultures through music dance, arts, education, and entrepreneurship. Last March of 2019, the first edition of the Festival hosted 50+ creatives and brought together over 500 Edmontonians to rejoice, share and experience a multitude of mesmerizing acts.
It’s frozen out there but we are cancelling winter for one night only! Our motto is #WinterIsCancelled and every single year we promise to stand by it! Join us for a legendary night of pure vibes and blessed community and forget all about the ice, the frostbite and glacial winds as we transport you to a world where the sun is hot, the drinks are cold and the people are vibing. This is the tropical experience of the year you can't miss!
