About Us

Latin American Festival Latino Ottawa - Gatineau

The Latin American Committee is a non-profit organization, organizes its anticipated annual PARADE in order to give a great opportunity to communities in Ottawa and Gatineau to learn, celebrate and taste the Latin American hospitality and heritage.

The First Latin American Festival in the capital region took place in 1997 demonstrating the integration between numerous countries in Canada. The Festival displays its exotic mosaic of dances, music, art and cuisine. It also has a parade that starts on Wellington Street by Parliament hill and ends at Mario Dewar Plaza at the City Hall with more music, food, crafts and other products for sale.

The parade is valuable to latin communities in order for them to not only conserve their culture and pass it along to their children, but to also share its richness among other cultures in Ottawa and Gatineau that are multicultural societies.

Tamales are a ubiquitous food in Latin America. These YUMMY packets of steamed goodness all start off with a Corn, Rice, Yuca or Plantain base dough, but their sizes, FLAVOURS, and fillings vary by country! It’s why the Latin American community in Ottawa is COMING TOGETHER to bring as many regional varieties as we can under ONE roof🙌🏽
