Latincouver will take place in Vancouver from October 14 to November 2 to commemorate the rich and fascinating Latin American heritage and its influence in BC and Canada.

Latincouver

Latincouver is a non-profit organization that brings together both Latin Americans and Latin enthusiasts living in BC. Showcasing the best of Latin music, art, and literature, along with the diverse culture of Latin America. Latincouver’s aim is to create a modern-day plaza to help professionals and entrepreneurs connect and create conversations to help grow their businesses. This vast network can be compared to the public square or, as it is commonly said in Latin America, la plaza. This will be the third consecutive year Latincouver has taken place in Vancouver, with a combination of in-person and online events.
