Taste of Latino Festival, an event put together by the same team behind the International Cuban Sandwich Festival, takes place on October 15 from 12pm-5pm. The flavorful event is set at Centennial Park (1800 E 8th Avenue), and includes three street closures to pack in even more vendors and performances.

Admission to the event is free, but you need to register in advance. There will also be a VIP area set in the Ybor City Museum gardens. It’s set to be a beautiful day filled with live music and dance performances. This event also includes the closing ceremony for the 2023 Hispanic Heritage season, TOP Latino Chef Contest and the 2023 Florida Latino & Latina Lideres will be recognized and awarded live on stage.
