La Fiesta del Pueblo returns to Downtown Raleigh
The Triangle's largest and most diverse festival of Latin American culture returns to Downtown Raleigh on September 17!

RALEIGH (WTVD) -- La Fiesta del Pueblo returns to Downtown Raleigh on September 17 from 12 p.m. - 6 p.m. The event is the Triangle's largest and most diverse festival of Latin American culture!

The afternoon will be filled with live music, dance performances, visual and folk art exhibits, educational resources, food, and activities for the whole family.

Headlining this year's event is Banda Zeta, a regional Mexican band formed in the state of Nayarit, Mexico, in 1993. Their music once topped the charts in both Mexico and the United States.

Over 24,000 people attended last year's festival, and its organizers hope to see that number grow for 2023.
