Lee, Founders Weekend Celebration>>


The Festival Latino of the Berkshires is proud to bring the 22nd annual in conjunction with Lee Founder Day Weekend, to Lee, Massachusetts on Saturday, September 16, 2017 from 12 – 5 pm, rain or shine.

Our Hispanic Heritage Celebration begins with dancing in the Lee Founder’s Day Parade.

At 10:00am. Our participation in the parade Saturday morning, proudly display our Latino connection with the Berkshire Community, as we have done in the past. If you or any of your children would like to be a part of our parade, we would welcome you as we want this year’s parade to be bigger and better than ever! Latino culture is alive and well in the Berkshires and this parade is our chance to show it!

From 12:00-5:00PM people of all ethnicities will come together at the First Congregational Church Park, Main Street, Lee, MA. Attendees can expect to enjoy Ethnic Latino American dishes such as lechona, tacos, chorizos, arepas, tamales, empanadas, and horneado will be on sale. D.J. Gusano Rojo will provide music for dancing. We will also offer the opportunity to practice Spanish with local native speakers and Great Arrington Zumba by PJ Birrel.
There is nothing so affirming for the Latino community that the opportunity to come together and enjoy the pride and vibrancy of our heritage for this special day.

The 3rd Latin Gala Party, as always a much-anticipated event, will be happening at the Eastover Estate and Retreat Tally-Ho barn at 430 East Street in Lenox, MA from 9:00 PM on.

The Gala will feature the renowned, Alexander y su Orquesta, a 12-musician band from Boston, MA, playing Salsa, Cumbias Tropicales, Merengue, Bachata and Reggaeton.
Alexander Faria originally from Venezuela, a singer and composer who was nominated to Boston Music Awards and Boston Latin Awards.
The 3rd Latin Gala Party has a cover charge of $25 per person and this cost will help meet the expenses of the event. Semi-formal dress code recommended.
