Festival Cubano

Festival Cubano has grown from a small grassroots fair to one of the Midwest’s largest Latin celebrations, attracting hundreds of thousands each year. This year’s festival celebrates its 10-year anniversary and features carnival rides and games, food and merchant vendors, and premium hand-rolled cigars on site by Master Cigar Makers. Family-friendly festivities will also include a domino tournament, a vintage classic car show, and music and dance workshop.
