A contingent of faculty and staff from Capital Community College shared college enrollment and program information for the Fall 2016 semester with thousands of participants at the second annual Latino Festival on the river at Mortensen Riverfront Plaza on Saturday June 25th.
The free event, sponsored by Luna Productions, was held from noon to 9 pm on a warm summer day and evening, attracting more than 5,000 in a celebration of Latino culture featuring live music and Latino cuisine.
According to Festival organizers, Hartford Latino Fest’s mission is to provide the community with an opportunity to experience traditional and contemporary Latin American culture through the presentation of the performing artist’s, dance, music, culture, art, authentic cuisine, local businesses, networking and service providers.
Capital’s booth at the Latino Festival is a part of community outreach and enrollment efforts organized by the Admissions Office. The outreach campaign is supported, in part, with funds from the CCC Foundation. Capital Community College was the first college or university in Connecticut to be designated an Hispanic Serving Institution by the federal government.
