Cincy-Cinco Latino Festival is cancelled! 
 
 
CINCINNATI, Ohio (February 8, 2021) – The Cincy-Cinco Festival set for Saturday May 1st  & Sunday May 2nd on Fountain Square, Cincinnati has been cancelled for this year due to the serious stage of the COVID-19 virus pandemic.
 
Organizers are following the recommendations of medical, civic and political leaders locally, statewide and nationally to cancel any gathering of more than 50 people in a face-to-face setting.
 
Chair Alfonso Cornejo commented: “We are very sad to make this decision, because Cincy-Cinco has become an important annual tradition to bring many people in the tristate area together for a weekend of Latino music, food and fun! But we recognize and accept the need to encourage wearing a mask (or two), social distancing in the near term and not to encourage coming together of large groups of people.”
 
To keep the spirit alive of Cincy-Cinco’s mission to share authentic Latino culture with the whole community, organizers plan to host a “virtual” one hour long Cincy-Cinco program to re-live some of the greatest moments in the 17 years of this event. It will feature highlights such as the Longest Taco in the World, as well as the Guinness award winning Largest Piñatá in the world and some of the best Latino dancing and food offered over the years. This event will take place on May 5th (Cinco de Mayo) at 5 pm. Stay tuned for more details!
 
The event will return bigger and better on May 7th & 8th, 2022
