Festival Hispano will be on Sunday, August 23, 2009 from 12 noon to 6:00 pm at the Millsboro Little League Complex on State Street. This will be the 15th year that Festival Hispano will be celebrated in Sussex County.

Festival Hispano is free and open to anyone who wants to celebrate Latino 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 once again a special area will be dedicated exclusively to children’s entertainment and activities.

Festival Hispano is one of the many activities sponsored by the local non-profit 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, the National Endowment for the Arts, Bayhealth Medical Center, Beebe Medical Center, Discover Bank, Mountaire Farms of Delaware, Perdue Farms, La Quetzalteca Mexican Restaurant, Sussex County Council, UFCW-Local 27, and WSFS Bank.
