The Apex Latino Arts Festival was piloted in 2010 in order to highlight the presence of Latino arts and culture in our local community and provide an opportunity to build bridges across cultures. Year after year, The Apex Latino Arts Festival continues to grow after resounding interest and participation. Throughout the day, the Apex Latino Arts Festival hosts a culinary event, children’s arts and crafts workshops, traditional piñata breaking ceremonies, Latin American dance and music performances, and an authentic arts and crafts bazaar.
The festival begins at 3pm with art activities, piñata breaking, games etc. for children and families at the Halle Cultural Arts Center. The event continues in the evening, from 6 - 10 pm, with the ever popular culinary event featuring signature dishes of Central and South America and the Caribbean, on Salem Street (between Center and Saunders). Latino dance and music performances, arts and crafts bazaar, non-profit exhibits, and more, add to the festive atmosphere.
