Vancouver’s biggest three-day Latin American festival Carnaval del Sol is returning this summer.

The event, which runs from July 8 to 10 this year, features live music, art, dance, sports, poetry, and, oh yes, plenty of food.

Carnaval del Sol is the Pacific Northwest’s biggest Latin American festival and is a great way to spend some time in the sun while enjoying Latin culture and cuisine.

The festivities will take place in a new location this year at Jonathan Rogers Park and you’re definitely going to want to come hungry.
