PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE

 
 

Mariela Parra, President of the Hispanic Arts Society

With great pleasure, I invite you to join us for the annual Expo Latino Festival, a celebration of Hispanic culture, music, dance, and art. Our festival has become a highlight of the summer in Calgary, and this year’s event promises to be even more exciting than ever before!

For 36 years, this organization has profoundly impacted Hispanic artists in Canada and beyond, and I am thrilled to be part of its exceptional team, which includes our devoted board, executive team, staff, and volunteers.

Our family-friendly festival offers something for everyone, from fantastic food and drink to music, dance workshops, an art zone, and cultural pavilions. There will be amazing performances from international and local performers. 

We thank our sponsors and collaborators, including the City of Calgary, Calgary Arts Development, Alberta Foundation for the Arts, and the Government of Alberta, whose support makes this event possible.

I invite you to celebrate the 28th Expo Latino Festival at Prince’s Island Park on August 16, 17, and 18. It promises to be a wonderful celebration of Hispanic culture and an unforgettable experience!

See you there!

 
Mariela Parra
President & Artistic Director
