Community Hispanic Heritage Festival This Saturday in Monmouth


This Saturday on the square in Downtown Monmouth, the Greater Warren County United Way will be hosting their Hispanic Heritage Festival from 5 to 10 pm with nine food vendors, a Mariachi performance, Quad Cities Ballet Folklorico, and dancing with DJ Pelle Mix. Executive Director Jeannie Weber shares the inspiration in this community event:

“We decided that it would be a really good idea to pull the community together and have a celebration over food, drinks, and music we could get to know each other a little bit better because that is how you build trust. You just need to get to know each other a little bit better and once you realize we are all here for the same human experience at the same time, it is a lot easier.”

Over 500 are expected to attend Saturday’s festival, which lands in the midst of Hispanic Heritage Month.
