The Latino Community Association invites the community to its eight annual Festival of Cultures on September 13 at Redmond’s Centennial Park from 10am-5pm. The Festival is an international affair including booths set up by Central Oregon residents representing many different cultures from around the world and Oregon’s only community-based Official Citizenship Oath Ceremony.
The event includes local dance troupes, singers and musicians, ethnic food vendors, service and product vendors, and a great kid’s area. We’ll also have our popular Passport Challenge game again for the kids with wonderful prizes. New activities this year include the Parade of Cultures and an International Street Fair (flea market) to include informal vendors of new and lightly used items.
For the past 14 years, the Latino Community Association (LCA) has been empowering Latino families and children and building bridges across cultures to create a more resilient Central Oregon. In partnership with caring individuals, businesses, community organizations and public agencies, LCA remains committed to empowering our families to thrive.
Programs of LCA include workforce empowerment, family empowerment and cultural enrichment, as well as translation services and diversity training.
