Fiesta Cultural

The upcoming First Friday ArtWalk, on Friday, Sept. 1, is paired with Fiesta Cultural, a celebration of Latino art and heritage that will take place September through December. Fiesta Cultural is a “county-wide initiative to increase opportunities for integration of Latino individuals into the broader community through the arts,” according to Lane Arts Council’s website. The fiesta starts during First Friday ArtWalk at 5 pm in Kesey Square. It’s partnered with the city of Eugene’s Cultural Services and EUGfun! and will include a salsa dance lesson with José Cruz of Salseros Dance Company, a bilingual guided tour of art galleries and tabling by community partners along with other events. Later, Fiesta Cultural will also have events in Cottage Grove’s Art Walk (on Sept. 29) as well as other dance, music and art events spanning through December.
