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.
