A new festival will heat up the Exchange District on Friday, August 2.
The first annual FIESTA: Latin Block Party Street Festival will run from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. at the corner of Main Street and Bannatyne Avenue.
The celebration, being put on by MJN Entertainment, serves to bring awareness to Winnipeg’s diverse Latin population and will showcase a variety of Latino culture and include music, dance, cuisine and arts.
Local artists El Jefe and Yoslay de la Rosa will perform while patrons sample traditional foods alongside our downtown establishments.
Tickets to the 18+ event are $10 and available at the entrance.
