The ever-popular Fiesta festival on Sept. 24 marks 20 years in Birmingham and Mobile Latin Fest returns for its second year Oct. 14. Both events honor Hispanic Heritage Month, which began Sept. 15 and runs through Oct. 15.
Alabama’s largest celebration of Hispanic heritage and culture, Fiesta this year celebrates ¡Somos Familia!, which means “We are Family.” The event offers a bounty of food, culture and music from 20 Latin American countries. Fiesta is a longtime fan favorite, providing musical entertainment, performing and visual arts, cultural education, food trucks with authentic Hispanic dishes, community engagement, children’s activities and famous “Lucha libre” professional wrestling acts.
For several years, Alabama Power and volunteers of the company’s service arm, the Alabama Power Service Organization (APSO), have partnered in many initiatives and events for the Hispanic community in the state.
