Attendee Love

“A seriously epic experience! Latin Sparks has been so much fun year after year. The festival brings such a raw and contagious energy. Definitely nothing like any other Latin event I’ve attended in Canada. LOVE that it’s outdoors! I felt like I was on the streets of Havana!”

Sarah Arruda
Toronto

“Most fun I've ever had out dancing in Canada or Ecuador. No judgement, just pure fun. One hell of a party! Came from out of town for the event and my Latino husband and I will definitely be going again next year!”

Milaina Larsen
Ottawa

“As soon as I got close to Albert Island, I could feel the energy. Such a different vibe than a bar or a nightclub. The place is on fire! Everyone is dancing - even though the majority of us didn’t know how to dance lol, we were dancing like nothing could stop us!”

Rami Boraie
Ottawa

“Latin Sparks... don't know where to start!!!! When I think of summer in Ottawa, I would say this event is the only thing that keeps me stationed here and not wanting to be somewhere else! It brings so much energy, great music and new friendships! It's unbelievable...!”

Ivana Jovanovic
Ottawa
