Taste Of Cuba Festival At Hialeah Park February 28 & March 1
Two-Day Event Expected To Draw Large Crowds To This Iconic South Florida Venue,
Festival Will Showcase Cuban Culture Through Art, Music, Food, Spirits, And More
Hialeah, FL / February 10, 2015 – The highly popular Taste Of Cuba Festival, which has become an annual “can’t miss” event in South Florida, comes to historic Hialeah Park Racing & Casino for a two-day run Saturday February 28 and Sunday March 1.
“We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to bring this wonderful event to a historic venue like Hialeah Park,” said festival organizer Fermin Perez. “My goal with the Taste of Cuba has been to showcase the culture I was always curious about and the heritage that my parents instilled in me. It makes perfect sense to have the 2015 festival at the most iconic location in all of Hialeah.”
Festival goers will be treated to a variety of Cuban-themed entertainment, food, beverages, and art. Some of the top restaurants in the area will offer their exquisite culinary delights both days of the festival. And the talented artist Alexander Mijares will present his newest works, “Me Recuerdo,” a series of five mixed-media pieces dedicated to the artist’s Cuban heritage.
Perez noted that Carlos Hernandez, Mayor of the City of Hialeah, was quick to offer his endorsement and support of the Taste Of Cuba Festival. “We received a wonderful letter from the Mayor in which he expressed his confidence that the city with the largest Cuban population in the United States will warmly welcome people from all over Miami and the surrounding communities to the festival.”
The Taste Of Cuba Festival, scheduled from 12 noon to midnight on Saturday February 28 and from 12 noon to 10 PM on Sunday March 1, takes place during the final weekend of the live horse racing season at Hialeah Park. Those attending can move easily back and forth from the festival to the horse races, which are run from 12:35 – 4:30 PM both days.
