PITTSBURGH—The Center for Latin American Studies (CLAS) at the University of Pittsburgh will host the 31st Annual Latin American and Caribbean Festival on Saturday, March 26, in the William Pitt Union (WPU), 3959 Fifth Ave., Oakland, from noon to midnight. The festival is one of Pittsburgh’s signature cultural events, attracting thousands of individuals from the multicultural community to enjoy local and international musicians, handmade arts and crafts, authentic Latin American cuisine, traditional dance performances, and children’s activities.

This unique gathering showcases the many organizations, businesses, and cultural groups that make up Pittsburgh’s diverse and growing Latin American community. While activities are ongoing throughout the day, highlights include the Colombian band Bésame and the Brazilian dance/martial art group Axé Capoeira Pittsburgh. Visitors can shop at booths offering a variety of goods or serving specialty dishes from Latin American and Caribbean nations.
