Since 2016, We have worked in Arkansas communities to bring cultures together through education and the arts. We uplift Hispanic artists, dancers, musicians, and educate the public on the nuances of Latin America. Our events are multi-layered, participatory, and supported by individuals and businesses who value the well-being of communities.

Our Mission

Traveling Arts Fiesta supports and promotes Arkansas-based Latino artists, builds bridges and relationships between cultures, provides public platforms and initiates dialogue, integrates education with the arts, and combats community apathy.

Traveling Arts Fiesta has made a huge impact in helping us reach out to our Hispanic neighbors, and it has added more life to our annual downtown event.
