Univision Arkansas and the Fayetteville Chamber of Commerce are teaming up for the 2nd Annual Hispanic Heritage Festival. There will be dancing, music, food and even a health fair on October 4 & 5 at Mae Farm.
Fayetteville city leaders say the Latino population has made significant political, economic and social contributions in Arkansas.
"Without this diversity we would not have the strength to have the economic engine we presently have. And it's the talent and the time and the treasure of all of us in Northwest Arkansas that makes it grow and we want to celebrate that diversity," says Fayetteville Chamber of Commerce President & CEO Steve Clark.
The family-friendly event is free to the public. The festival will coincide with a national celebration, which began in 1968 under President Lyndon Johnson.
