The Pacific Northwest’s biggest Latin American Hybrid festival is coming back to Vancouver this August. The Carnaval Del Sol (not to be confused with the 1962 film Carnival of Souls) is hitting the city August 12 to 29.

The festival is put together by Latincouver and is absolutely chock full of amazing events and things to check out. There are shows such as musical performances of “The Sounds of Latin America” and stand-up comedy from Spanish-speaking comedians.

On top of that, there will be workshops on food and dance that you can check out. And, there will be a few outdoor festivals full of music, food, family activities, and, yes, beer. So, there’s basically no reason to check it out. It really is a must-visit for lovers of, and those who grew up with, Latin American culture.
