In partnership with the Mi Museo Committee, the Springfield Museums are proud to announce the inaugural Latino Arts Festival, an all-day celebration on Saturday, September 30, 2023 at the Springfield Museums. In addition to salsa music, food trucks, and hands-on, family-friendly activities during the day, the Festival will feature an After-Hours party for adults with a cash bar, DJ, and band. The evening event is free, while the daytime programming is free with Museums admission. Springfield residents always receive complimentary admission to the Museums.
The Festival also coincides with the opening of “Latinos en Springfield: Presente y Pasado,” a photography exhibit chronicling the growth of the Latino community in Springfield since the 1940s.
