Hillsboro's Latino Cultural Festival returns
The 16th Annual Latino Cultural Festival is on June 5 in Hillsboro, hosted by the Hillsboro Hops at Ron Tonkin Field.
The event is organized by the Hillsboro-based Washington County Chamber of Commerce. COVID-19 canceled the event for the past two years, so 2022 marks the return of the largest Latino cultural celebration in Oregon's most Hispanic county.
"We are truly excited that the Latino Cultural Festival is returning this year," said Deanna Palm, president and chief executive officer of the Washington County Chamber of Commerce, in a press release.
"COVID caused us to cancel the event for two years, and this year the festival will be at an exciting new location — Ron Tonkin Stadium," Palm continued.
The free event will fill the stadium with music, dance, food, games and other forms of family-friendly entertainment. Local elementary students will participate in an opening ceremony to kick off the event, the press release notes.
There will also be a play area, as well as chances for children to run the bases, the press release says.
Alcoholic beverages will be served and can be consumed in specific areas of the stadium.
More than 30 vendors are signed on for this year's Latino Cultural Festival.
For the full list of sponsors, vendors and other details about the event, visit the Washington County Chamber website.
The event is free and open to the public, held at noon on June 5. Ron Tonkin Field is located at 4460 N.E. Century Blvd. in Hillsboro.
