Event celebrating Latino culture and heritage coming to North Clackamas

North Clackamas Parks and Recreation District (NCPRD) will host a late-summer “party in the park” to celebrate Latino culture and heritage.

Fiesta Latina en el Parque takes place from noon to 4 p.m. on Sept. 10 at North Clackamas Park in Milwaukie. Community members are invited to attend this free, family-friendly event to learn about cultural traditions through food, live music, arts and crafts, and kids’ activities.

The entertainment lineup includes musical and dance performances by Dina Y Los Rumberos, Vancouver Ballet Folklorico, Woodburn High School Mariachi Band, and Lines Dance Academy. Local artisan vendors will also feature a mix of jewelry, clothing, ceramics, candles and bath products.

“This is the district’s first year hosting Fiesta Latina en el Parque,” said NCPRD Director Michael Bork. “With Hispanic Heritage Month on the calendar in September, this event is a timely opportunity for residents to connect with one another while honoring the diverse cultural traditions of our LatinX community.”

This event is sponsored by Clackamas Review, Univision and Milwaukie Community Center Foundation.
