- C$12 for admission for two to Latin Sparks Finale on Saturday, September 20 (C$20 value)
The grand finale of five Latin Sparks festivals, this enormous dance party builds on the success of the first, which drew more than 6,000 visitors in May. Click here for a short video of an earlier Latin Sparks event.
A Latin dance party. A Baghdad-style bazaar. A gathering of French-speaking conversationalists. These are a few of the events held by The International, an Ottawa-based organization that connects the community through dance, music, food, and language traditions from across the globe. The 1001 Nights event features activities such as henna hand painting and fortunetelling, and the Latin Sparks event mirrors the heat of summer with a sprawling block party that fires up dancers in the city streets. And at International Tongues gatherings, groups practice speaking languages such as French, Spanish, or Pig Latin.
