About Afro-Latino Festival NYC
The Afro-Latino Festival NYC celebrates the African roots that run deep in Latin America and the Caribbean—and, by extension, New York City. The Festival which takes at venues in Harlem and Brooklyn enters its 5th year anniversary in 2017 with a Tribute to Women of the Diaspora. The affirming event is a weekend-long tribute to the art, music, and culture created and enjoyed by Afro-Latino people, as well as a positive space for discussing issues that affect the community.

Music and Fun
The fest features a curated food experience, a vendors' market, and a dominoes tournament, but the main draw is always a stacked musical lineup. The Festival Weekend features presentations of salsa, Latin jazz, merengue, reggaeton, soca and folk music, as well as headliners like 2x Latin Grammy Winner´s Milly Quezada and Susana Baca, the Queen of Soca, Alison Hinds, Amara La Negra, reggae pioneer Johnny Osbourne and plenty of other international and area artists. The concerts keep Bed-Stuy swaying all weekend long.
Afro-Latin Talks Conference
The action-driven side of the festival brings together scholars, writers, advocates, and cultural figures for panel discussions relevant to the community and the Liberacion Film Festival highlighting diverse stories in film. The 2017 edition covers such topics as museums and representation, climate change and rural/urban land displacement, spirituality and activism, and community economics and entrepreneurship.
