Bienvenidos a la Fiesta! Now in its 39th year, the Johnston Street Fiesta, celebrating the Hispanic Latin American Culture, is back bigger and better than ever. This fabulous two-day event attracts thousands of people to the colourful Johnston Street in Fitzroy to eat, drink, dance and enjoy.
There will be a wide range of bands, performing so there is bound to be something that gets your feet tapping and your hips swaying. DJs will be on hand between acts to ensure that the beats keep pumping and the stage keeps jumping.
Dancing in the street
Join in the dancing in the street with a Salsa, Bachata, ChaCha, Cuban, Samba or Rhumba class and get a work out at the same time as having fun. There will be colourful costumes and dance demonstrations for you to enjoy, all set to the infectious Latin beat.
With plenty of food stalls serving food from all the different Latin countries, the smells and sights will have you salivating in anticipation. The hard part of deciding where to start as you make your way down the street.
Don't forget the fabulous Street Parade at 1pm on the Sunday. Always a very colourful and fun part of the fiesta that will be sure to delight young and old.
