The Dallas Colombian Festival is coming to Addison Circle this year. The festival which celebrates Colombian Independence Day is in its fourth year. The heart of the festival is to show the best of Colombian culture from music to dancing, crafts and of course, delicious music. I may be a little biased, after all, I was born in Cali, Colombia and I’ve attended more than a few of the festivals in the past and they are a lot of fun to attend. I can assure you; a great time will be had by everyone.
Colombian people love to gather and celebrate together, and Colombian Independence Day is one of the country’s biggest celebrations, so make sure to come hungry and ready to have a great time. Colombian empanadas, arepas, and so much delicious fried food!
This is the largest Colombian festival in North Texas and now that it’s taking place in Addison Circle we expect it to continue to grow and bring not just Colombians together to celebrate the country’s independence, but introduce more and more people to all the beautiful things Colombia has to offer. Come and experience Colombian hospitality, sample some amazing food, and get your cardio going dancing the afternoon away with live music from different artists including Feid, who is coming all the way from Medellin!
Tickets start at $20 for adults, children 12 and under get in free. This year’s festival will help raise money for the Representa Foundation. Representa is a non-profit organization that helps provide opportunities and support for underprivileged children locally and in Latin America. The event will take place on Sunday, Jul. 24, from 3:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. at Addison Circle Park. Tickets to the Dallas Colombian Festival can be purchased online from Uptown Latino’s website.
¡Que Viva Colombia!
