The Hispanic Fiesta is one of Philly's biggest Latino cultural events.

PECO's Multicultural Summer Series continues Saturday, July 11, and Sunday, July 12, with the 34th Annual Hispanic Fiesta. This popular event unites the local Latino community, drawing 15,000 people per day. 

Held along the waterfront at Penn's Landing's Great Plaza, the weekend includes performances by renowned Latin American acts Cintron Band and India. Authentic Latin American cuisine, dance, music, artisan goods and more will fill the plaza. 

The activities will also include free events for children and families, plus free health screenings. The "Kid's Corner" will feature appearances by Dora the Explorer, Spongebob and friends, too. 

Each year the festival continues to raise awareness of Latino culture and bring together guests of all ages for a weekend of family-friendly fun.
