Latin American Festival
4400 Sharon Rd., Charlotte
COST: $5 adults, $3 children 12 and under
One of the most colorful festivals in Charlotte is also one of the largest. The Latin American Festival has been running for two decades and draws more than 25,000 people to Symphony Park for an afternoon of traditional music, cultural performances, handmade arts and crafts, and, of course, authentic Latin American cuisine.
The festive atmosphere is contagious. Grab a churro and watch as performers wearing traditional Latin American costumes take to the stage to show off their traditional dances.
