Latino Fest

Saturday, Sept. 1, the Basque Block

by

Downtown Boise's Basque Block is the seat of Basque cultural events in the City of Trees, but on Saturday, Sept. 1, it will undergo a transformation, playing host to the fourth-annual Latino Fest. Latino Fest highlights Boise's ties to the Latin American community with food, music, dance, art and more, and this year's festival from 4-10 p.m. will spotlight performances from the Rumba Libre Band, Los Caipirinhos, The International Sonora Dinamita (with Vilma Díaz) and DJ Giovanni, as well as workshops for kids and food with roots that span the region. Plus, attendees can shake their tail feathers during salsa, bachata and merengue classes before showing off their best moves at a dance contest.
