Annual Celebración Latina

October 6th, 2019
11 am - 5 pm

Audubon Zoo
6500 Magazine Street

The Stone Center started the annual family festival, Celebración Latina in 2004 to inaugurate the Pebbles Center. Since then, it has outgrown the original location at Laurence Square, outside the Pebbles Center to now be hosted by the Audubon Zoo. Fifteen years later, this festival now welcomes thousands of families to the zoo to explore the Jaguar Jungle and all the other creatures at the zoo. The festival is held at the Capital One Stage near the sea lions. Come join us for the 15th annual festival to celebrate Hispanic Heritage month and enjoy the fall weather.
It will offer a true taste of the Latin American culture with live music, children’s activities, and authentic Latin cuisine prepared and sold by local restaurants.

Guests can visit with Community Partners to receive free wellness and social service information. Young people of all ages can create a special take-home souvenir at the Kids Tent. Celebración Latina is presented by Pan-American Life Insurance Group and sponsored in part by the Stone Center for Latin American Studies with additional support from WWNO. The event is free with Zoo admission, Audubon Nature Institute membership or a ticket which are available by first come, first serve now at the Stone Center. You may also pick up a ticket on the Audubon Zoo website.
