“Fourth Annual Que Pasa Fest 2014 to Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month over Four Days of Festivities”
Cervantes Fundación Hispanoamericana de Arte (Cervantes Hispanic-American Arts Foundation) and Hispanic Flavor Productions are proud to announce the Fourth Annual Que Pasa Fest 2014. With the support of several sponsors, this festival will be an extension of the Latin cultural show, “¿Que Pasa New Orleans?" celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month and highlighting exciting Latin music and Hispanic heritage and culture.
Que Pasa Fest 2014 will be a four-day festival filled with music and dance and will be held at various locations throughout the Greater New Orleans area. Festivities will begin Wednesday, October 8 and culminate Saturday, October 11, 2014 with an outdoor festival for the whole family at the Al Copeland Meadow Concert area in Lafreniere Park. Organizers feel that with the 3000+ festival goers who attended last year, the bigger area will be a wonderful opportunity to accommodate more people, food booths and activities this year. Zumba fitness and children’s games and character appearances will still be held in the Pavillion area during the first half of the day. All festivities are FREE to the public.
The artist line-up and schedules are still in the development and confirmation stages. They will include local and international artists. During the last several fests, award winning artists have included: Amanda Shaw; Rockin’ Dopsie; Rumba Buena; Patrice Fisher & Arpa; AsheSon; Karma; American Idol Top 12 Finalist, Jovany Barreto; Riccardo Crespo, and Julio & Cesar, among others. As the Fest gets closer, an announcement of the schedule, venues and participating artists will be made. To see this year’s artists, click on PERFORMERS.
