  • About Plaza Latina

Carnaval del Pueblo has been promoting Latin-American culture for over 25-years, at its peak reaching 200,000 festival visitors in Burgess Park.

PLAZA LATINA is a joint venture between both organisations. It manages a multi-use space enabling traders and artists to join forces, collaborate and reach new customers to earn a living while promoting our cultural heritage.
