Latin Music And Food Festival Is Coming To West Palm Beach, Featuring Domino Tournaments, Food Truck Face-Offs And More

A celebration of Hispanic culture will take place in West Palm Beach this weekend. 

The inaugural Latin Music and Food Festival is hitting the Expo Center at the South Florida Fairgrounds on Sept. 17 and Sept. 18.

The event, which is sponsored by South Florida Ford, kicks off Hispanic Heritage month. There will be something for everyone—no matter the age. Expect food vendors, dancing, tournaments and live performances by famed Spanish musicians, such as Tito Puente Jr. 

Regular admission tickets are $8 for kids and $20 for adults, with discounts available for those who buy online before the festival. For the full line-up and schedule visit latinfestivalpb.com

As the Latin Music and Food Festival nears, these are the five things we’re most looking forward to.

No Hispanic get-together is complete without a couple rounds of this beloved pastime. The festival will also feature soccer tournaments for those who prefer a slightly more active time-honored tradition.

3. A break from the Florida heat

While some northern cities are already seeing hints of fall weather, Florida remains with temperatures in the high 80s. This indoor festival will provide us with a much-needed break from the scorching sun. Plus, there will be plenty of vendors to peruse. A little shopping never hurt anyone. 


2. Hours of live performances

With a packed lineup, this festival promises to keep you jamming along to merengue, salsa, mambo, raggaeton and more as bands take the stage from the afternoon to the early evening. Headliners include Angel y Khriz, Tito Puente Jr., and Eddie Santiago.

Plus, attendees who are feeling lucky can enter to win a real guitar signed by Latin Music & Food Festival performers. Just stop by Ford’s giant 16-foot guitar display, take a photo and upload it to Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #FordLatinFest.

No festival is complete without food—and with this being a Latin food festival and all, we’re confident the eats will be top-notch.
