The inaugural Latino Arts Festival takes place int he Bishop Arts District from noon-5 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 4. Oak Cliff-based attorney and former City Council member Domingo Garcia and his wife, County Commissioner Elba Garcia, are sponsoring the festival.

The free festival features music from Denton-based Mariachi Quetzal and Dallas-based Felix Flores Band. There will also be salsa dancers, poets and art projects for kids. The festival also includes a visual art competition.

The Garcias wanted to put on the festival to showcase our city’s Latino art and culture, says event spokeswoman Esmeralda Orozco.
