2014 Festival Latino Attendance Up by 25 Percent
Festival Latino 2014, held in Bicentennial Park this year, drew more than 150,000 people during the two-day event, an attendance increase of 25% over 2013. Already the largest Latin event in Ohio, 2014 attendance numbers further solidify that position.
2014 is the sixth year CAPA has produced the Festival which strives to celebrate family and community with two days of children's activities, music, food, fashion, art, and dance from the heart of Latin America.
The Ohio Arts Council helped fund this program with state tax dollars to encourage economic growth, education excellence, and cultural enrichment for all Ohioans. CAPA also appreciates the support of the J. Allen and Ruth Maxwell Pyne, Lois S. Chope Memorial, and Richard H. and Ann Shafer Funds of the Columbus Foundation, assisting donors and others in strengthening our community for the benefit of all of its citizens, and the Greater Columbus Arts Council, supporting the city's artists and arts organizations since 1973.
Owner/operator of downtown Columbus' magnificent historic theatres (Ohio Theatre, Palace Theatre, Southern Theatre) and manager of the Riffe Center Theatre Complex, Lincoln Theatre, and the Shubert Theater (New Haven, CT), CAPA is a non-profit, award-winning presenter of national and international performing arts and entertainment.
