Update 5/4/22:

The ¿Qué Pasa? Festival that was planned for May 7 is now being moved to June 11 due to inclement weather in the forecast, the Virginia Hispanic Chamber announced.

“We are making this decision solely with our partners’ and vendors’ safety and happiness in mind. This move will also ensure maximum turnout to the ¿Qué Pasa? Festival, providing more guests and customers for our many vendors, since the weather would majorly dampen our turnout as well as cause issues for our fantastic entertainers & dance groups,” the chamber said in the announcement.

The festival will still be held along the Canal Walk from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.

The VAHCC is excited to showcase the diversity and beauty of Hispanic & Latin American cultures once again, in the capital city of Virginia! The goal of this festival is not only to bring a cultural and educational experience to Virginia, but to also bring business back to our amazing local businesses, artisans, food vendors, entertainers, and more!

Dance the day and night away to our amazing live Latin music and prepare to be mesmerized by incredible performances by local favorites. Enjoy delicious Latin culinary staples, savory desserts, select beers, and specialty drinks. Stroll through our artisan market, featuring unique vendors, live artist exhibitions, homemade crafts, gifts, and more. Enjoy some family fun in our Kid’s Area featuring educational installations with arts and crafts activities. Attendees will also enjoy a colorful ride along Richmond’s historic canals on the beautifully decorated boats inspired by the Floating Gardens of Xochimilco, Mexico.
