Summer is Heating Up Just in Time for Latin Day

Valleyfair

Valleyfair is the Upper Midwest's largest amusement park, offering endless fun and thrills with world-class rides, attractions and live entertainment.

Summer might be winding down, but here at the park, we are heating up for Latin Day! For the second year in a row, Valleyfair is partnering with Univision to bring Latin Day to the park. Come celebrate everything Latin American as we sing, dance and feast on some delicious authentic food. Keep reading to find out everything we are doing to host the biggest fiesta of the season.

If you are looking for some amazing live entertainment, you’ve come to the right place! All-day long, Valleyfair will be hosting a variety of performers for you to enjoy. We will start off the day with an exciting Mariachi band and as the day goes on, we will continue to feature dance groups, bands, and a DJ,  all from around the area. You might recognize bands Expression Tropical or K-Libre 24, who both performed here for last year’s Latin Day. But this year, performances are going to be bigger and better, and we can’t wait for you to experience it!

We will also have appearances from special guest Marisela de Montecristo, who participated in the Miss Universe 2018 competition and has been named Miss El Salvador. She is well-known in El Salvador and works closely with Univision and other networks. She is an inspiration to many women and young girls, and we can’t wait to have her in the park! She will be acting as emcee and will also spend some time with fans throughout the day.

With all of that live entertainment, Latin Day guests are sure to work up an appetite! But don’t worry, we have you covered with some fantastic authentic food trucks sporting cuisine from all around Latin America. If you’re looking for another option, you can check out Pajarito, the restaurant taking over Depot Refreshments this month! They will be serving up Mexican dishes with a modern twist. Be sure to dig into some of their tasty dishes while you dance along with the Latin Day music.

The best part about Latin Day is you can experience it all for FREE with the price of admission! That’s right, once you enter the park on Saturday, August 17th, you can enjoy all that Latin Day has to offer. You won’t want to miss out on immersing yourself in some Latin American culture right here at Valleyfair, so join us on August 17th for the fiesta de su vida!
