The biggest annual Latino festival in the Triangle is set to celebrate its 20th anniversary in a downtown Raleigh park.

La Fiesta del Pueblo celebrates the diversity of Latin American culture through international and local musical acts, cuisine, art exhibits and children's activities. The event is scheduled for Sunday in Moore Square.

Organizers say the headliner for this year's festival is New York-based merengue sensation Oro Solido, led by Dominican-born Raul Acosta. The event also features dozens of non-profit organizations and state agencies that will share information and resources with the Latino community.

ABC11's Sheyenne Rodriguez is the emcee of Sunday's festival.

All proceeds for the event go to support the work of El Pueblo Inc., a local non-profit organization dedicated to helping the Latino community.
