Celebrate the revival of Latino Fest in Madras

You won’t be able to keep your feet still once the bands take the stage at Sahalee Park in Madras on Sept. 10. Latino Fest celebrates Latin American culture in Central Oregon and the Latino Community Association and its partners are reviving the live event after a two-year pandemic break.

Conjunto Bahía from Seattle will deliver Colombian dance rhythms and costumed dancers from Michoacán, Mexico, will tap out the Baile de los Viejitos (Dance of the Old Folks). Local music and dance groups will keep the stage vibrating, and a spread of savory food, locally grown produce, and cultural booths will fill the park. Nonprofit organizations will share what they offer with visitors and kids will find activities just for them.

The festival opens at 11 a.m. and wraps up at 6 p.m. Admission is free. To learn more, visit the Latino Community Association’s website.
