RALEIGH (WTVD) -- ABC11 is a proud sponsor of La Fiesta del Pueblo, a festival happening in downtown Raleigh this Sunday that celebrates Latino culture through food, art, music, and dance.

The annual festival is free and is organized by a local non-profit organization called El Pueblo. It's set to take place on Fayetteville Street from noon to 7 p.m.

The event will feature over 20 different food vendors. ABC11 spoke with two of the food trucks expected to be at the festival to show you how you can make some of these dishes yourself.


The Corner Venezuelan Food, is a local food that will be serving up their authentic arepas at La Fiesta.

Arepas are flat, round corncakes that are served with a variety of different topping or filler - oftentimes, meats, cheeses, and sauces.
