The Garden Fiesta is our biggest event of the season! 2021 marks our third year celebrating Latinx culture with music, food, art, and kids’ activities in the beauty of the Garden and admission is FREE!
Parranderos Latin Combo (PLC) will perform from 5-7pm. This Latin music group, based in Des Moines, IA, will have you moving to their music! The group’s self-titled debut album includes 9 original songs written in Iowa and recorded in San Juan, Puerto Rico by Grammy award winning engineers Ramon Martinez and Carlos Velazquez.In addition to taco trucks and music, there will be a station to place flowers in your hair, vendors, dance instruction, a Mexican art exhibit and more. Kids will have plenty of fun creating giant bubbles, trying out instruments, and making crafts at the creativity station. There will be two piñatas to break, one for the little ones and one for those a little older. Please join us to learn, celebrate, and have fun together!
