Event description


Experience the vibes and atmosphere of a Latin American Fiesta at this family friendly celebration of music, dance, art and the amazing tradition of "Dia De Muertos"

The fiesta will include live music from local and interstate bands, DJs, art and cultural exhibitions, market and food stalls, a kids Piñata and face painting for everyone - AND FOR THE FIRST TIME IN CANBERRA - authentic LUCHA LIBRE (Mexican wrestling) by Lucha Fantastica.

Starting at 1pm until 8pm all inside the amazing Ainslie Arts Centre - we have lined up some Tango Punk HipHop from the amazing The New MonoS (Melb/Argentina), Soul Reggae mixed with psychedelic peruvian jams from Nativösoul (Syd/Peru), instrumental Flamenco from the Masked Mariachi's Kalidad (Syd), and some Latin Ska and Cumbia from local Los Chavos and Romanian Gypsy music from Super Rats!

All of this comes with entry to the festival PLUS a special all-ages LUCHA LIBRE Show and photo session for all our under 18’s and families.

Get your face painted and learn a little about how vast and deep Latin culture is. Paint a skull, learn a dance or two and reflect on what’s important as we mark the Mexican tradition of the Day of the Dead by enjoying the best in life!

The bands finish at 8:30pm so you all have time to put the kids to bed and make your way to main night time event - AUTHENTIC LUCHA LIBRE - Mexican Wrestling - for the first time in Canberra!
