Festival Hispano is free and open to anyone who wants to celebrate Hispanic cultural heritage. This day includes beautiful music, folkloric dances, plenty of delicious Mexican and Latin American food, information and services targeting the Hispanic community, and a special area dedicated exclusively to children's entertainment and activities.

The event is one of the many activities sponsored by the local nonprofit arts organization known as El Centro Cultural. Formed in 1995 to provide more artistic, cultural and social programs, El Centro Cultural plays an important role in discovering and promoting local Hispanic artists, supporting local arts education, and coordinating local community events.

Festival Hispano is made possible by important grants from the Delaware Division of the Arts, Atlantic General Hospital, Bayhealth Medical Center, Beebe Healthcare, Delaware Division of Motor Vehicles, Discover Bank, El Mercado Market, Harvard Business Services, La Tonalteca, Perdue Farms, and Sussex County Council.

Those who want to participate in Festival Hispano to promote a business, inform the community of services, and reach thousands of Hispanic residents from all over the Delmarva Peninsula, can go to for applications and more information. Find El Centro Cultural on Facebook.
