September 19 - September 25

While following all local, state, and federal guidelines in regards to Covid-19, we will highlight Latin American cultures in all their rich variety and pay tribute to the generations of Hispanic Americans who have positively influenced and enriched our nation and society—particularly the Tri-Cities area!

Parade of Flags

Sunday, September 19 @ 2:00pm

This opening ceremony is held in Grand Haven Central Park with the Parade of Flags representing the Hispanic/Latin countries. We hope you will join us as we launch the week-long Hispanic Heritage Fiesta.

RESTAURANT WEEK

Restaurants in the Tri-Cities will be participating in a special restaurant week from Monday, September 20 through Saturday, September 25. You will sign up in advance for a Hispanic / Latin American country whose cuisine you want to showcase with a special appetizer, entrée, dessert and/or drink.

Each participating restaurant will donate a percentage of sales of these food items to Fiesta. The net proceeds of the Fiesta will then be divided between a local non-profit the newly formed Tri-Cities Puentes Initiative.

The Origenes (Origins) dinner is a community experience featuring pre-Hispanic food presented in partnership with the MeXo restaurant in Grand Rapids.

Who's the chef behind it all? Chef Oscar Moreno, a native of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. His passion for food was rooted in the importance it had in his family-life while growing up. That passion grew while he worked under chefs from different countries. Now, he's sharing his passion and his menu for Fiesta 2021.

Mana has unquestionably become the biggest musical group in Latin music history. Millions of albums sold worldwide, sold-out concert tours and multiple record awards are just some of the accomplishments achieved by one of the most popular bands in the world.


Revolucion de Amor has claimed the nation's heart as being the best tribute to Mana in North America.
