Noche Latina brings Hispanic heritage to the Fair

Noche Latina

Noche Latina

It’s a night of art, music and entertainment representing our Latin community. Check out the performances on Tuesday, Oct. 16 at 7:30 p.m. in Dorton Arena.

Throughout the evening, a Venezuelan dance group and a Mexican dance group will perform, along with a salsa band and a mariachi band.

The individuals in Noche Latina are all community members that were chosen to perform to embody the Latina heritage in the Triangle area.  The groups will perform traditional dances and music to represent the diversified cultures in our society.

“Noche Latina is looking forward to engaging with people in the community and getting to know their neighbors,” said Michelle Bermeo-Betancourt, development coordinator at El Pueblo. “We want to be a local source where people can get involved and engage with others in the community in a deeper way.”

Noche Latina is associated with the nonprofit organization, El Pueblo, which is known for their leadership development throughout the county’s Latinx community. El Pueblo means “The People” or “The Community,” which is why they have taken the name for their community resource service, where people can get involved and gain an understanding of the Latinx culture.

In addition to their local efforts in community engagement and cultural awareness, El Pueblo hosts various other events such as La Fiesta del Pueblo. These events cultivate an understanding and appreciation of the large, diverse Latin American culture present in our community.

About Fried Oreo

On the blog I go by Fried Oreo (AKA Emily Hughes). At the Fair, you'll find me checking out the live music or hanging out in Heritage Circle. My absolute favorite part of the Fair is getting a taste of all the different kinds of food! Counting down the days until it all begins!
