Latincouver will take place in Vancouver from October 14 to November 2 to commemorate the rich and fascinating Latin American heritage and its influence in British Columbia and Canada. Over the next 20 days, Latincouver will celebrate with a series of interactive events including artist performances, art exhibitions and online workshops.
Latincouver is a non-profit organization that brings together both Latin Americans and Latino enthusiasts living in British Columbia. Showcasing the best of Latin music, art and literature, as well as the diversity of Latin American culture. Latincouver’s goal is to create a modern place to help professionals and entrepreneurs connect and create conversations to help grow their businesses. This vast network can be compared to the public square or, as it is commonly said in Latin America, the place. This will be the third consecutive year that Latincouver has taken place in Vancouver, with a combination of in-person and online events.
âThis year the festival will host a series of interactive events such as the art exhibitions – Perceptions of Mother Earth and the Altar installation by Muertos; online and in-person workshops including flamenco, tango and wine in one night, the Brazilian experience and the DÃa de los Muertos market; and for the first time, a Mapping video in one of Vancouver’s most iconic locations, âsaid Paloma Morales, Latincouver project coordinator.
Latin music will be represented by an exceptional selection of performances from artists such as Mariachis Los Dorados, Celso Machado, Forro Du Cana, Daniela Carmona, Matices del Sur, Sambacouver, Mozaico Flamenco, Argentina Tango Lab, and many more.
Latin American Heritage Month in-person activities will be held in the Ocean Art Works and Performance Works pavilion on Granville Island. Capacity is limited to 50% and all health and safety protocols will be followed to ensure a comfortable, safe and enjoyable environment for everyone.
