Fiesta on Wells to celebrate Latino culture, art and businesses

The Fiesta on Wells — an annual celebration of the arts, culture and contributions made by Latinos — is back this weekend following a year hiatus due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

The event will feature music, dance performances and various Latin-American foods in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday on Wells Avenue between Arroyo and Burns streets.

According to Reno Councilman Oscar Delgado, who helped sponsor the event, it’s a chance for families disconnected from relatives, friends and other loved ones last year to come together.

Roughly 85 vendors are expected to participate, and organizers estimate 4,000 people will attend.

“The event is something I feel is growing year by year,” Delgado said. “It’s definitely an event that is celebrating all Latino and Hispanic cultures across our region. There’s more diversity here in Washoe County as shown from the recent numbers that came out from the census.”
