Last year, downtown Lexington felt like a Latin American country as more than 30,000 people came out and celebrated Lexington’s Latino community at the Festival Latino de Lexington.

Activities include live music and dance, youth activities, cultural presentations and vendors, informational booths, authentic cuisine and more.
