2016 marks the 7th Annual Festival Cubano to be held on the weekend of August 12-14, 2016 in Riis Park. Now a Chicago summer festival tradition, Festival Cubano was created in 2010 as a grassroots effort to celebrate all aspects of Cuban culture. Since then, hundreds of thousands of people have come from near and far to experience a little bit of Cuba in Chicago.

Today, Festival Cubano continues to focus on celebrating Cuban culture and emphasizes the importance of Latino unity and cultural exchange by featuring world-class entertainment, merchandise and food from across Latin America. Additional fun features include a Carnival ride and game area, Beer Garden & Cigar Lounge, Domino Tournament & Rumba/Drumming workshops for the entire family.

Join us as we celebrate Cuban culture & unity in Chicago.
