La Fiesta del Pueblo 

When: Sun., Sept. 27, 12-7 p.m. 2015
Phone: 919-835-1525
Price: free



It's hard to believe La Fiesta del Pueblo, an annual event celebrating the Triangle's diverse Latin cultures, was first held 21 years ago for a crowd of 3,500 at Lincoln Center in Chapel Hill. Then, after seven years on the Chapel Hill High School campus, the ever-growing party moved to the state fairgrounds in Raleigh and, eventually, to Moore Square. This Sunday, for the second year in a row, La Fiesta will call Fayetteville Street home con lluvia o sol (rain or shine), showcasing Latin-American music, art, dance and food. El Pueblo, the Latino advocacy group born of the fiesta, is turning 20, and the musical lineup promises to properly celebrate this landmark. The main stage features performances by danzón and diaspora music masters Charanga Carolina, the brassy Banda Los Guanajuatenses and daring merenguero Mala Fe.

Noon–7 p.m., free, Fayetteville Street, Raleigh,
