Performers

Each year, over 200 artists pass through the stage of the Mississauga Latin Festival providing a show of cultural diversity with the colourful display of costumes and contagious movements, and a variety of musical rhythms performed by the different bands and singers. The festival is proud to promote our local talent and to showcase the folkloric groups that show the traditions of the different geographical regions in Latin America, and they, in turn, preserve those traditional dances for future generations.

Parade

One of the most important attractions at the Mississauga Latin Festival is the parade.
Every year the parade is headed by the Mississauga Mayor, Councillors from the area as well as Provincial and Federal representatives. Each year, Latin American countries are represented by delegations that put together a beautiful display of traditional costumes, musical groups with percussion, and wind instruments such as "Papayeras" and "Chirimias" that engage the audience and the dancers along the parade’s route. Throughout the years, the parade has welcomed participants from the other continents that want to have their country represented in the parade that has grown to be not only a Latin American parade but a parade of the cultures.
