About Hispanic Heritage Fiesta 2020
Because of the cancellation of many live events during Hispanic Heritage Month due to COVID-19 outbreak, Hispanic Heritage Fiesta 2020 provides an opportunity to celebrate Latinx culture in our Greater St. Louis Metro region with culture, heritage and fiesta!
This first-ever virtual fiesta will be produced, directed, and edited by James Klein, owner, and Executive Producer at DiarioDigitalSTL.com. Hispanic Festival Inc. provided consultancy and support throughout the production process. The program would not be possible without the local Latinx artists supporting this initiative. Portions of the Sponsorship will go to support these artists. Please consider a donation or Sponsorship of this program.
