Granville Street and Robson Square will be the home base of “food, fun, culture, and fiesta” when Carnaval del Sol takes over July 5th and July 6th as a part of Latin America Week in Vancouver.
Presented by Latincouver, this free arts, culture, and music festival kicks off summer in style with energy and flavour, creating a Latin American plaza in the heart of downtown Vancouver.
Some of the scheduled events include locally and nationally renowned Latin musical artists, folk dance troupes, a marketplace that displays the work of Latin American artisans and games for kids. As soccer is an important activity in Latin America that brings communities together, a traditional multicultural street soccer tournament is another highlight of the Carnaval Del Sol.
Registration for the street soccer tournament at Carnaval del Sol is now open. Join soccer fans and organize a team to play in the “LatinCouver Mini World Cup” where 16 teams will play in a world cup-style event with each team representing a country of the world.
Head over to Robson Square for a dance party, enjoy cuisine from local food trucks, take in the secondary stage entertainment lineup, and check out the work of many local and international artists. Carnaval del Sol will be located along Granville Street, from Nelson to Dunsmuir.
