Now in its 19th year, Australia’s biggest Latin American music and dance festival will feature 30 bands, 45 dance groups and 15 dance classes. And all for free!

The Fiesta kicks off on Friday night, 1 October and will leave you spoilt for choice with a huge line-up of international and Australian performers on three (3) outdoor stages complete with open-air dance floors. The entertainment will include high-energy bands, salsa and tango experts, Brazilian carnivale girls, flamenco dancers, capoeira masters, DJs as well as the daily parade of giant puppets and Capoeira Brasil’s batucada drummers and samba dancers along the eastern promenade of Cockle Bay from 2.30pm – 3.30pm on Saturday through to Monday. Also on these days, there will be free open dance classes at Palm Grove including zumba®, salsa, merengue and cha cha cha. Plus, there’s face painting for the kids from 12:00 noon to 4:00pm.

Enjoy the tastes of Latin America and sample regional specialities including paella, tacos, enchiladas, empanadas, tapas, Colombian coffee, Spanish churros and Argentinean alfajore cookies. Latin American craft stalls will also be set-up along the Urban Stream.

And, sizzling fireworks will light up the sky to a live performance by Mi Tierra on Sunday night from 7:30pm.

We are also very pleased that a number of sustainable initiatives will be carried out at Fiesta this year including purchasing of 100% GreenPower and distribution of personal ashtrays to smokers to dispose of cigarette butts responsibly. No food will go to waste, with all consumable food collected by OzHarvest at the end of each day and delivered to charities. Stallholders have also been encouraged to use biodegradable and compostable items for serving food.

So get on down to Darling Harbour this long weekend Pyrmont people and celebrate Australia’s biggest Latin American music and dance festival. To check out the Event Program, visit
