Scholarship support gives students the tools they need to beat the odds and succeed!

Kenge Kenge will also present an interactive workshop at the same location at 2:00 p.m. on June 29 ($15 for the afternoon workshop, $10 suggested donation for the evening concert, or $20 total for both).

Festival Latino Internacional
Michael J. Zone
6301 Lorain Avenue, Cleveland

Festival Latino Internacional is proud to present its annual celebration, this year themed 'Taste of Cultura'¯ a Latino Makers Exposition, an event which will take place over the course four days. Dates of Thursday, July 18th, Friday, July 19th, Saturday, July 20th and Sunday, July 21st located at Micheal J. Zone, 6301 Lorain Avenue, Cleveland, Ohio 44102.

Hispanic immigrant families have become important and respected members of the flourishing creative industry. Mexicans, Puerto Ricans Cubans, Chilean and the many others of Latino descent have all played a part in the growth of the arts, crafts and makers industry in the United States. While their stories may differ, the extraordinary work ethic of these Hispanic entrepreneurs is shown by their success. Moreover, while most of these makers first learned about the creative industry through their cultural eyes, they often expanded their knowledge with the introduction of the diverse melting pot of our country. Without the contributions of these Hispanic artists, craftsman, chefs, makers, business owners and other equally distinguished creative endeavors of Latino origin, the world might not be as bright and vivid as it is today.
