About

Everything changed for Peru on July 28, 1821, when South American leader Jose de San Martin declared independence from Spain. A three-year struggle ensued, but Peru's freedom was solidified in December of 1824, when Venezuelan Marshall Antonio Jose de Sucre defeated a Spanish army at Ayacucho and ended the Spaniards' South American rule.

Naturally, July 28 has become a day of celebration. In Miami, it takes the form of the Peruvian Independence Day Festival. This annual event brings together the Latin American community and the city at large for a weekend of music, dance, and art; this year, there's a special focus on traditional Peruvian cuisine. At the food booths, you can sample tamales, fried sweet potatoes, and ceviche and drink a pisco sour.
