About The Event
In 2010, a small group of Salvadoran residents in Harrisonburg decided to form the Comité Salvadoreño Paisanos Unidos (COSPU) with the goal of promoting Salvadoran cultural heritage in Harrisonburg and the Greater Shenandoah Valley.
In August of that year COSPU organized a cultural and sports festival in honor of the Divine Savior of the World, patron saint of El Salvador. In early August of each year since then, COSPU has organized what is now known as the Hispanic Festival, a large community gathering that features live Latin music, traditional ethnic foods, lightning men's and women's soccer tournament, children's activities, the crowning of the Queen and King of the festival, as well as craft, vendor and community exhibitions and information provided by consulates.
As always this event is made possible by volunteers and donations from organizations, businesses and individuals, as well as the support and collaboration of the City of Harrisonburg and its Parks and Recreation Department.
