The 3rd Annual Unidos en la Música (United in Music) Festival will celebrate the art, music, dance, sports, games and food of Latin America. The all-day festival will be held from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturday, May 6, 2023 at Francis Field.
All the information below is from last year's event. We'll update this information as it becomes available.
Unidos en la Música features a spectacular variety of art, live entertainment, quality merchandise, dance workshops, and great food. The family-friendly event showcases games, Latin dances, and award winning musical performers. The 2022 festival was a huge success with 7,400 attendees including a sold out VIP section of 600 folks. Los Ineditos del Vallenato, Baba Caiman, and Grammy winning, Columbian salsa band, Grupo Niche, brought the crowd to their feet as the fiesta rolled into nightfall.
The 2023 attendees can enjoy performances and exhibitions by dancers and performers from the U.S. and Latin America. They can even learn to dance with some of the best Latin dance groups around, such as Emily and Raul from the Salsa Kings and Romi and Alex from Alex Pro Dance in Miami. Performances include dances taught in Peru, a Zumba party, a Salsa workshop, and the Ballet Folklorico Azteca.
Over 70 Latin American vendors will present their wares, and Papayera La Arenosa from Colombia will perform "pop-up" style, playing their Columbian music as they wander the festival grounds.
A game section will feature games from all over Latin America, including Aztec ball game, bolletas, sapo, tejo, sominoes, and piñatas, as well as free soccer and baseball clinics.
Latin American food trucks and restaurant vendors will offer authentic foods.
