Potluck dinner with friends. Songs that remind you of home, or a vacation destination visited long ago. Dancing under the stars.
All of this sounds like some pre-COVID fantasy, right? Latinos Salud invites you to safely participate in its 9th Annual Hispanic Heritage Food Bazaar on Friday, October 8, 2021, outside on the lawn and in the parking lot at its Wilton Manors location, at 1401 NE 26th Street.
You can join as a guest, or register as a participant and represent the cuisine and culture of a country or territory. At least a dozen countries will have tables with local foods and decorations, prepared from the heart. Celebrity judges will award prizes for Best Food, Best Decorations, and Best Traditional Dress.
Long held at ArtServe, the event will be staged outdoors this year, for greater COVID safety. Guests are asked to wear masks throughout the event except when socially distanced or actively eating.
The event honors National Latinx AIDS Awareness Day and Hispanic Heritage month. However, you don’t have to be Latino to attend.
Food and soft drinks are provided with the $10 donation entry, and two bars will be open by donation. Once you register, the hosts will contact you to note whether you are joining a country’s table, or just coming as a guest.
This Food Bazaar will also benefit Latinos Salud’s team fundraising towards the upcoming Florida AIDS Walk fundraising season. AHF has chosen the agency to be a Walk beneficiary again, which means that all funds donated at the event will be matched by the Walk, to support Latinos Salud’s free services: HIV testing, STD screening, PrEP initiation, COVID vaccination, linkage-to-care, as well as its new Young Adults program in Broward, and its Health & Culture programming in both counties.
Get ready for an evening of community and flavor! To register for the event, donate here, and write FOOD in the message. Latinos Salud will send your entry code to the email address and cell phone number you provide.
