2nd Annual Hispanic Heritage Festival Expected to Draw Thousands to Downtown Monmouth


This Saturday, September 16th, the United Way of Greater Warren County is hosting their second annual Hispanic Heritage Festival in the Northeast quadrant of the square in Downtown Monmouth. Executive Director Jeannie Weber shares the event has expanded from the previous year:

“This year we are going to have 20 vendors. We also have the space now to welcome some merchandise vendors. Last year we had a couple of merchandise vendors, but not as many as we would have liked because we just didn’t have the space. The food is delicious. The bar is wonderful and the merchandise is going to be really fun.”

The Hispanic Heritage Festival is free and open to the entire public from 6 pm to midnight.
