La Fiesta del Pueblo celebrates its 19th anniversary a remarkable milestone for a humble Latino festival that began in the athletic fields of a local high school as an answer to the community calling for a space in which one could share information and Latino culture among the Latin American community and its supporters. We can nurture local artists, promote wider cross-cultural understanding, and ultimately make the City of Oaks a city of the arts, a city of cultural diversity, and a beaconing city for the South.
The small festival has become much more, integrating every aspect of El Pueblo’s work into one day, including a health fair which offers free vaccines, dental and vision screenings, blood pressure and glucose tests; a public safety fair; information and educational resources from the more than 230 organizations that offer their materials to participants. Information and resources are shared by nonprofit organizations that use the event as a way to kick-off initiatives and/or unveil new programs and information on a variety of community services. Voter registration has also become a staple of the event.
El Pueblo, Inc. has worked collaboratively to lead North Carolina’s Latino residents and organizations in becoming fully integrated, informed, and engaged members of their local communities. Fiesta could not be possible without the collaborative work of the many organizations and volunteers that participate every year.
El Pueblo, Inc. has an Accessibility Plan for La Fiesta del Pueblo. Our event is held every year at the North Carolina State Fairgrounds, which already has an accessibility plan in place that complies with the regulations and guidelines set for state-owned facilities. Additionally, we have access to at least two (2) golf carts during the event to aid any person needing further assistance to move about during the festival.
