The Mountain Fiesta is a homemade celebration of Latin American and Appalachian culture, created with the vision of giving our community the opportunity to interact, sing, dance, and learn about the beauty and diversity of Latin America. Specifically, the Mountain Fiesta aims to create a space where our community members can learn dances, practice language, and sample food from countries they’ve never been to, while sharing some of our own uniquely Appalachian products and practices. Ultimately, this event is a celebration of the richness and uniqueness of Latin America, set in the heart of the Cumberland Gap, and a chance to appreciate the similarities and differences between our mountains and the mountains of Latin America. The Mountain Fiesta is an inclusive celebration, with no entry fee, plenty of fun, and interesting opportunities for our entire community. This event is organized and supported based on the understanding that our community – our world – is a better place when we celebrate diversity; when we celebrate each other.
