Festival of the Americas Flyer
The Food Festival is an event envisioned for the enjoyment of the family
and of all those who wish to be acquainted with and taste a sample of
Latin American and Caribbean gastronomy as well as its culture. This
event transports the public to a corner of each participating country
through the tasting of typical meals, samples of crafts, music, dances
and customs. Since its first edition, the Food Festival has taken place
at the Aztec Gardens of the Main Building of the Organization of
American States (OAS) in Washington D.C., and takes place during the
last weekend of April every year.
This event takes place thanks to the participation of many
collaborators and sponsors, such as the Permanent Missions of the member
countries of the OAS which contribute with food, drinks, music and
raffle prizes, and a substantial group of people, companies and
organizations that donate their time and money to the festival.
The key to the success of the Food Festival throughout these years
has been the generosity of those people who unconditionally work and
contribute their time, money, skills, creativity and workmanship to make
it possible. With the help of over 120 volunteers from the diplomatic
missions, schools, parishes, congregations and universities, it has been
possible to increase the funds collected every year in order to help the
women and children of the Americas.
