The biggest Latin American festival in the Pacific Northwest returns to Vancouver this week.

Celebrating its 10th anniversary, Carnaval del Sol will take place from July 7 to 8 at Concord Pacific Place.

The event features live music, art, dance, sports, delicious food and poetry. Over 400 artists from different Latin American countries will attend the festival.

The arts showcased during this event include live musical bands, Native Canadian and Latin American visual art, traditional folk dances from different countries, arts and crafts displays, dancing and culinary lessons (from international and local chefs), and a Latin American inspired fashion show.

This year’s festival will include 10 plazas and five stages that will showcase Latin American talent and entertainment from around the world.

To celebrate the festivities, attendees are encouraged to wear bright colours and “shine together.” If you think you’ve got the best outfit, head to the photo booth on site and post a picture on social media using the hashtag #CSOL for your chance to win a huge prize!

And if you want to keep the party going, check out the Carnaval del Sol after party on July 7.
