Rhode Island Latino Arts will be turning 35 in 2023!

In September of 1988, RILA's Executive Director launched the first statewide celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month (HHMonth). It's hard to believe, but this coming September will mark the 35th anniversary of that moment. To celebrate, we're hosting a community fiesta.

Join us for Sabor Latino, where you can enjoy a taste of food, music and art. Purchase your ticket to support RILA, and don't forget to bring your appetite and dancing shoes! Families welcome.

Location: The Broad Street Gateway Center, 1197 Broad St. Providence, RI 02905.


Adults: $25 per person in advance, $30 at the door: Children: $10 each; 6 & under FREE • Family Rate: $35 for a family of four or five (parents & children only)

This is what you will get with your ticket

  • Sample the Sabor Latino Special from our food vendors.
  • Samples from our drink vendors.
  • Art-making for everyone/families.
  • Music & dancing until you drop!
