Cville Sabroso celebrates six years as Charlottesville’s premier Latin American festival

newspaperSin Barreras (Without Barriers) and The Lua Project are excited to partner again this year to present Cville Sabroso 2018.  The festival will take place on Saturday, September 15 from 12:00 p.m.-9:00 p.m. at the IX Art Park located at 522 2nd Street SE.

“Cville Sabroso is a source of pride for me because it gives us the opportunity to share the richness of our culture with the wider community and enjoy a beautiful day with family, friends and the general public.” says Roger Gonzales participant and attendant of the festival.

There is no better way to do that than with music, dancing, kids’ activities, and food! This year’s Cville Sabroso festival includes a full and exciting line up of traditional Latin American music and folkloric dance performances. Festival-goers will be able to enjoy local Latin American food and beverages, and Latin inspired artists and vendors who will offer arts and crafts from all across Latin America.

This year, the TOROSIETE Museum of Contemporary Art is part of Cville Sabroso bringing their collection of Latin American and Spanish Fine Contemporary Art to the festival.  Over 10 artist exhibitions of works and video interviews with the artists (in Spanish with English subtitles) will be presented.

“The Cville Sabroso Festival has enjoyed several years of showcasing authentic music and dance from all over Latin America to the local Charlottesville community. TOROSIETE was honored to be asked to provide a Fine Art component to this festival that attracts over 5,000 people. We will be presenting our artist videos and video exhibitions along with tours of our artist’s 3D Virtual Gallery spaces in our “Museum Lounge” throughout the festival.” says Ferdinand Ocasio Tomlin, curator and president of TOROSIETE. .

Cville Sabroso is Central Virginia’s only Latin American Music Festival. Bring your family and friends to enjoy a day of culture and tradition from our Latin American neighbors!
