Viva America Latina

Join us on Saturday 27 October 2018 at Viva America Latina, a day of dining, dancing and entertainment for the whole family at Lyne Park, Rose Bay from 1pm to 9pm.

Come along and enjoy a range of Latin American food and drinks, browse artisan market stalls, and enjoy a full day of entertainment, including DJs, bands, and dances from all over Latin America, as well as exhibition soccer matches.

Children will enjoy getting their faces painted and the opportunity to get a photo taken with an alpaca, as well as take part in a football penalty shootout. There will also be Latin American crafts and storytelling to take part in.
