La Fiesta del Pueblo 2016 from ABC11CreativeServices on Vimeo.

Over 22,000 people were in attendance for one of our most successful Fiesta’s ever, right in the heart of downtown Raleigh.  Fayetteville street came alive to the sound of music from all across Latin America as festivalgoers enjoyed food, local art, and fun for the whole family.  We thank all of the artists, performers, exhibitors, volunteers and sponsors who made the event a great success!

We welcome people with disabilities to our festival and work to make things accessible as possible, for questions about access and accommodations contact Cecilia Saloni.
