!Viva Cultura! Festival is back for another year

Get ready for the exciting ¡Viva Cultura! Festival, which kicks off Saturday, August 13, at 10 a.m. for a weekend packed with fun and excitement at Gateway Park!

The event invites everyone from Arlington and neighboring communities to come and add to a very special and memorable cultural experience. Celebrate Latino music, food, family entertainment and an artisans’ market.

Best of all, ¡Viva Cultura! Festival is FREE, Family-Friendly and an Enjoyable Outdoor Event.

Be sure to visit the artisans’ market, open until 5 p.m. and prepare for a journey to faraway places. See and touch intricate brilliant weaves, fine handcrafted silver, and stylish one-of-a-kind fashions from Colombia, Peru, Mexico, Bolivia and El Salvador that showcase the richness of each culture.

Festival raffles are taking place throughout the day. Registration is not required, but we strongly encourage you to register to participate to save your special chance to win!

¡Viva Cultura! Festival is made possible with support from our sponsors — Wells Fargo, Embrace Home Loans, Wider Path Home Foundation and Homespire Mortgage. Together, we have created an event tailored for families to embrace the beauty of the Latino culture.

¡Viva Cultura! Festival is presented by CAF, Center for Assistance to Families, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization whose mission is to transform communities through economic and educational empowerment in collaboration with community and faith-based organizations.

To get to Gateway Park by Metro, take the Orange line to Rosslyn station or walk across the Key Bridge. For details, visit to learn more!
