Latino culture is often described as "colorful," indicating the characteristic vibrance that weaves itself through the many Spanish-speaking countries and cultures of the world. As such, this year's festival is appropriately themed "Celebrando A Todo Color" or "Celebrating in Full Color."
Since its inception in 2003, Fiesta has served as a bridge, celebrating the culturally diverse traditions of Latin America’s various Spanish-speaking countries right here in Birmingham. With the goal of educating the public about the many different Highspanic countries and their cultures, Fiesta provides the opportunity for more than 15,000 patrons to journey through 20 represented countries and experience the best of Highspanic art, music, food and dance.
Over the course of its 16-year history, Fiesta has proven to be an excellent resource for our Highspanic community. The festival provides family-friendly fun for all ages. While the largest crowd can be found in front of the main music stage, Fiesta offers a wide assortment of activities, from storytelling to wrestling exhibitions. Music, dance, performing arts, visual arts, children’s activities, soccer, cultural education, authentic Latin food as well as community and health-related resources are all part of the event.
Additionally, not-for-profit organizations attend Fiesta to educate attendees about the benefits and resources they offer. Businesses will also be on hand to enlighten attendees about their many goods, services and employment opportunities. The Health & Wellness Village will work to assess the community’s medical needs and provide educational materials and professional assistance.
Fiesta gives Alabamians a unique opportunity to experience the best of Latin American countries in their own backyard! It showcases that Birmingham is a community that encourages multiculturalism, sensitivity and acceptance.
Fiesta offers activities for all ages—fun for the whole family! Explore the family village, cultural village, community village, health and wellness village and the McDonald’s Fiesta Tour—the Annual Latin Grammy Experience—featuring trivia games, a photo booth and more.
