2013 will mark the 23rd year of the Charlotte Latin American Festival. Called a "true cultural experience that showcases the traditions of the Caribbean, Central and South America," it's a celebration of all things Latin America.
This this year's festival will showcase internationally renowned musical acts, cuisine from several different countries, visual art demonstrations from local artists, authentic crafts, dance presentations, and children’s activities.
The annual event attracted over 25,000 visitors last year.
If you're looking for authentic art, stop by the Plaza de Artistas, where Latin American artists will have their work on display. Almost every art is represented, from painting to pottery, to weaving and photography and more.
For more information, check out the festival's official site.
