Festival Hispano to celebrate 20 years in Sussex County

Festival Hispano will be held on Sunday, Aug. 10, from noon to 6 p.m., at the Millsboro Little League Complex on State Street in Millsboro. El Centro Cultural will be celebrating the 20th year of Festival Hispano in Sussex County.

Festival Hispano is free and open to anyone who wants to celebrate Hispanic cultural heritage. The day includes music, folkloric dances, Mexican and Latin American food, information and services targeting the Hispanic community, and a special area dedicated exclusively to children’s entertainment and activities.

Festival Hispano is one of the many activities sponsored by the local non-profit arts organization known as El Centro Cultural. Formed in 1995 to provide more artistic, cultural and social programs, El Centro Cultural works to discover and promote local Hispanic artists, support local arts education and coordinate local community events.

Festival Hispano is made possible by important grants from the Delaware Division of the Arts, Bayhealth Medical Center, Beebe Medical Center, Delaware Division of Motor Vehicles, Discover Bank, El Mercado Market, Harvard Business Services, La Tonalteca, Perdue Farms and Sussex County Council.
