Somerville Builds a Wall
In addition to music, dance & food, the festival will feature “Somerville Builds a Wall!” in which festival goers will be invited to add photos, drawings and/or write thoughts about Latino identity and contributions to our society. This wall will be a sounding board for Latino voices and a showcase of how Somerville is an inclusive community. We invite you to bring photos, letters or momentos to add to our wall —perhaps photos of family back home or a press clipping of how Latinos enrich our city and our country. Everyone is invited to participate! En Somerville, la diversidad es una fuerza!

Maize was a sacred plant for the Aztecs and other inhabitants of Mesoamerica. And this is of course un Festival del Maíz! So... come hungry and buy some delicious corn-based food. The menu includes: Pre-Aztec vegetarian Pozole, Venezuelan arepas, Mexican esquites, Peruvian chicha morada and sweet corn tamales. Also, at 7:20pm Estela Calzada will demonstrate how to grind corn using a metate, the traditional Mesoamerican method.
