Cuban Festival“Presencia Cubana en Los Angeles"

  • This location is shown only to members

The Cuban Music Festival celebrates the cultural heritage of Cuba. It is the only major celebration in Los Angeles of Dia de la Independencia de Cuba (Cuban Independence Day), which commemorates this Caribbean island’s freedom from Spain on May 20, 1902. The free family festival featured Cuban music, dancing, food and arts and crafts and fun for all ages.

This event will provide great opportunities for great photographs of people dancing, in costumes, playing instruments, or just hangingout.

    I dropped by, but didn't find there to be many interesting photo ops. Only stayed a few minutes though. Would love to see photos by others.

      Yes, I heard the same thing from another photographer. The park/lake went through a 2.5 yrs reconstruction and this is their first festival since it opened. The festival used to be better organized and much larger than this year, hopefully by next year it'll be back to normal.

      They seemed to be short on money, they were almost begging for donations, and it seemed no one was making contributions. I was disappointed also, but being a salsera the music was awesome
