2014 marks the 5th Annual Festival Cubano to be held on the weekend of August 15-17, 2014 in Riis Park. Now a Chicago summer festival tradition, Festival Cubano was created in 2010 as a grassroots effort to celebrate all aspects of Cuban culture. Since then, hundreds of thousands of people have come from near and far to experience a little bit of Cuba in Chicago. Today, Festival Cubano continues to focus on celebrating Cuban culture and emphasizes the importance of Latino unity and cultural exchange by featuring world-class entertainment, merchandise and food from across Latin America.
Additional fun features include an expanded Carnival ride and game area, The Babalu Beer Garden & Cigar Lounge, Domino Tournament & Rumba/Drumming workshops for the entire family. Join us as we celebrate Cuban culture & unity in Chicago!
