The Pan American World

Festival Latino is a celebration of Latin American cultures in the United States; the first of it’s kind here in Waco, Texas. We are working with Baylor University, businesses, churches, Waco ISD and many more local community functions to bring out the best possible representation of the Latino community in McLennan county. If you would like to learn more or join us in our mission.


This year, our theme is The Pan American World. The history of Latin America is one of diversity, adversity, and American idealism. Collaborating as a community of mixed races, ethnic groups, and nationalities, it is our duty to preserve and highlight the cultures of those that are proud to call themselves Latinos.
