Fiesta for everyone!

By on June 7, 2013

Fiesta London! is all about Mexican food, Mariachi Music, and Latin-American Folklore dancers. Londoners have been invited to take part in a Hispanic celebration at Fiesta London. This growing annual event is a time many Londoners use to celebrate the cultures and experiences of Canadians from Mexican and Latin-American ancestries.

Fiesta London! has become an extremely fun and broadly celebrated festival for Londoners. Fiesta London! celebrates with brightly colored decorations, live music, dancing, and authentic Mexican food, which makes this festival a great event to celebrate for every age and nationality. Why? Because this festival honors culture, tradition, and family

Now in its 4th year, the free, one-day event offers children’s activities, food, dance, and music from the heart of Latin America

Fiesta London! encourages individuals from all ethnic backgrounds to share in the beauty of Mexico’s rich history a long with other Hispanic influences in the city.

Cultural exchange and inter-cultural awareness are vital in a multicultural society like London. Ethnic cultural events such as the Fiesta London! present a wonderful opportunity to understand different values and beliefs while building bridges across communities in London and the rest of Southwest Ontario.

Fiesta London! is more than just a celebration. It’s an affirmation of the belief that our community is alive with promise.

Many of us have a sense that it is time for this thriving community to show itself, and others, the extraordinary beauty of a culture rich in diversity. The possibilities are endless … music, dance, tradition -Fiesta London is becoming a stunning tribute to the vitality of the Hispanic Community.

This is why Fiesta London is a family oriented festival, a showcase of our Heritage.

Fiesta London gives emphasis on the Mexican-Canadian way of life, as well as displaying other Hispanic influences in our society, such as Colombia y El Salvador. Our festival encourages individuals from all ethnic backgrounds to come share in the rich history, art, music and cuisine of our Hispanic community. We try to help maintain this culture in the community and within our children.

Once again, Fiesta London! Mexican Festival marks the kick-off of the festival season in the city -Mexican style.
