This summer, Vancouver is heating up with the return of Carnaval del Sol! This celebration of Latin American culture is a massive hit every year and we can't wait to get our hands on all the deliciousness and immerse ourselves in the music and dance of the festival.
From your favourite Mexican dishes to authentic tortas and arepas, you can eat your way across Latin America without ever digging out your passport from the junk drawer. This festival happens right on the waterfront in the peak of summer and it's an absolute can't-miss in a city that's jam-packed with summer festivals.
It's not just incredible Latin American eats that you'll find at this festival. There's also a soccer tournament, cooking demos, art, a beer garden and a main stage where you can see dance performances and listen to live music. There are actually 5 stages in total hosting over 450 artists so it's going to be insane and such a good time!
Carnaval del Sol is happening Saturday, July 6 and Sunday, July 7 in Vancouver at Concord Pacific on the seawall close to the stadiums at 88 Pacific Boulevard. There will also be a celebration in Kelowna on Sunday, September 1 and Monday, September 2. Check out their website for more details!
